Classes began today, and we have already hosted two events associated with a new year. Yesterday afternoon, our office hosted a Student Leaders' Summit where around 30 student leaders gathered to set goals for the year, network with each other, collaborate on their goals and hear from Dean of Students Eric Hartman about how to get things done on campus. The content for the afternoon was planned by a dozen students over a few lunch meetings in April, and it was great to see their planning benefit their fellow student leaders. (photos found below)
Last night, six returning students served on a panel for new students in a session entitled "Options and Opportunities." Students shared their experiences in working with a member of our staff, networking with alumni and participating in internships. Several new students have already made their way to our office to introduce themselves and to get started on plans for the future.
