Being active on a LEAD Team is part of my protocol as a Leader Advancement Scholar. LEAD Teams are designed... Continue Reading →

PROGRAM BOARD PT. 2

Last year as a freshman I got involved with this organization early on and fell in love with it. Read last year's blog here. I grew very close to the executive board and members so quickly I really felt like I found my place on campus. In my first year I volunteered at several events... Continue Reading →

COMMUNICATING AS LEADERS

Another requirement for the Leader Advancement Scholar and Leadership minor is COM 461L Communication in Leadership. Similar to LDR 200 this course was about theories and concepts centered around how leaders communicate to become more effective. I felt this course was the most beneficial so far in my Leadership minor coursework and LAS protocol. Walking away... Continue Reading →

PHL 118L REFLECTION

Required for the LAS protocol and Leadership Minor is Philosophy 118 Moral Problems. I never thought of myself as a philosophical person but I soon realized that it's beneficial to explore issues and theories in a philosophical manner. The topics discussed in class were utilitarianism, euthanasia, abortion, morality and religion, death penalty, sexuality, war, and... Continue Reading →

HST 110L REFLECTION

The course was very similar to the 'American History' class we all took... Continue Reading →

I had a lot of excitement for this team because our main purpose/goal was to provide unique and interesting opportunities for LAS cohorts and... Continue Reading →

TED TALK | SIMON SINEK

Simon Sinek began his investigation of how leaders inspire action by exploring what makes leaders stand out. He examined the way they think, act, and communicate and came to the conclusion that effective leaders start with "why". Sinek's quote, "People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it," explains how great leaders... Continue Reading →

LEADERSHIP = “YES!”

My professor for one of my leadership courses posed this question: "Does leadership come from a 'yes' or a 'no'?" I'm not going to lie, this question tripped me up quite a bit. I wasn't sure what it meant or how to answer it. Of course, my professor instructed that we either side with "yes"... Continue Reading →
