Board of Educational Programming

Board of Educational Programming (BOEP)

BOEP is a student group that all Collinsites are welcome to join throughout the semester. We meet bi-weekly and fund educational programs for the community, such as fireside chats and professor dinners. Additionally, BOEP is also in charge of selecting the Collins courses. Since taking a Collins course is a residency requirement, BOEP takes great care in assessing each course that comes through us in a series of interviews and meetings. We make sure that each course meets the needs of incoming students and provides a quality educational experience.

We're looking forward to selecting a whole new set of courses this semester and are always eager to have new members. Student input is very valuable to us, as we strive to put forth the best and most engaging courses out for Collinsites to take.

Hi everyone! My name is Levi and I am a sophomore majoring in Jewish Studies and Folklore. Besides being BOEP co-chair, I am also a Q instructor,  president of the Jewish Studies Student Association, and the Jewish Studies administrative intern. Here are a few fun facts about me: 1. I love cheese and once spent $180 just on cheeses. My favorites include gruyere, camembert, goulda, and chevre. 2. I am 6'7 and may be the clumsiest person you will meet. I will hit my head on many doorframes. 3. I am from Seattle and will talk about the Pacific Northwest at any chance I get. 4. I love puns! Any comment can be turned into a pun if you try hard enough! 5. My favorite chesh drink is a Fresca slushy with a shot of peach!

Hi Everyone! My name is Guba, and I am a senior pursuing degrees in Jewish Studies and Cognitive Science with a focus in Linguistics. I am currently one of the BOEP Co-Chairs, the Director of the Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference, one of the Co-Presidents of the Student Organization for Cognitive Science, a Student Manager at the College of Arts and Sciences Executive Dean’s Office, a Q-instructor at Collins, and a Research Assistant in the Learning, Education and Development Lab. Here are some fun facts about me: 1. I am almost always in my pajamas, and if I am wearing real clothes there is no doubt I am wishing I had my PJ’s on. 2. I have 4 dogs and obsessively show pictures of them to anyone who will look. 3. My homework playlist only contains hits from the late 90s and early 2000s like the Backstreet Boys, original Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears, Spice Girls, Fergie, Destiny’s Child, and NSYNC (the list goes on for a while, but you get the idea). 4. My favorite drinks at the Cheshire Cafe are a steamer with mint-chocolate syrup and a steamer with lavender and toasted marshmallow syrups. 5. I firmly believe that Olive Garden is a quality restaurant and will defend it against the haters
