Your “out of the classroom learning” is an important aspect of your college life. Participation in leadership will help you understand your role in group settings, help develop abilities for others to follow, and prepare you to act responsibly in a diversity of situations. Having leadership skills looks great on your resume and helps you stand out from other competitors in the job market, but there are life-long friendships to be made, practical skills to develop, and people to be served through your involvement. These are the skills that add quality and balance to your life not only now, but in life after college. Whether it’s finding your place on your college campus, or developing your future leadership potential, Office of Student Life leadership programs are designed to help YOU become the person you were meant to be.
