Developing Leadership Skills while Attending University

SpeakerAnna Ochs, Minnesota State University, Mankato

Whichever career field students pursue after college, it is important that students are well prepared for their leadership roles once they enter the workforce. There are many opportunities in universities for students to practice leadership while refining their problem solving and organization skills. Not only is getting involved in extra-curricular activities useful for building your resume experiences, it is also essential to developing your leadership skills and prepping you for future success. Join this session to learn how to “hit the ground” running by taking advantage of the extracurricular activities that are available at your university or in your community.

Thursday, May 25, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Commitment, Relevance, and Passion: How Colleges View and Weigh Applicants’ Extracurriculars

Speaker: Cristina Bain, Independent Education Consultant

Independent Education Consultant Cristina Bain will lead a conversation examining what colleges and universities are looking for when they evaluate a candidate’s extracurricular and super-curricular profile. In an increasingly competitive study abroad process, we will explore how to fill your life and your application with *meaningful* activities. Using sample profiles and lots of concrete examples, Cristina will help students of any age think about the options available. Extracurriculars are (after all) about personal and intellectual development to help you prepare for the next stages of your life, not just a boost to your chances at a top university.
