What Students Have to Say

Leadership Connect has allowed me to learn about my personal strengths and interests and how they relate to my career choices. I am more aware of the different occupational fields and which ones I’ll work best in!

Through 21st Century Leaders, I have learned that leadership occurs not from the front, but on the streets and from the back. You have to be the change you want to see and complacency is your worst enemy!
