A Leadership Experience for First-Year and Sophomore Students!

Emerging Leaders Conference can help you find out!

Emerging Leaders Conference can help you find out!

Welcome to our new First-Year students and welcome back to our Sophomores!  We hope the first week of classes has treated you well, and you are all settling in for what should be an eventful year.

Many of you may be looking to get involved, or are looking for that next step in your involvement, or are looking for an opportunity to reflect on the work you have done thus far while here at MIT.  The Student Activities Office wants to be a partner in that process with you, and offers the Emerging Leaders Conference as an exclusive opportunity for first-year and sophomore students to learn more about leadership, their own personal style of leadership, and where that can take them here at MIT and beyond!

The Conference takes place at the Endicott House from September 27th-28th, with transportation to this great off-campus retreat location provided.

Interested students can register to attend here: http://studentlife.mit.edu/sao/leadership/elc, but only the first 30 who apply will be accepted – after that, folks will be placed on a wait-list, so register soon!

The SAO wants to be sure you have every opportunity to excel, grow, and challenge yourself both inside and outside the classroom, lab, or dorm during your time here at MIT, and the Emerging Leaders Conference is a great first step on that path!

The Multicultural Showcase and Mixer hosted by the Office of Multicultural Programs was a great success. Hosts and attendees alike, had a wonderful time. The event took place on September 9, 2013, in the student center. Student groups from all cultural backgrounds came together to meet their advisor, Ms. La-Tarri Canty, as well as the new graduate assistants: Christopher Espinoza, Onyinye Oriji, and Qingyi Yu.

Attendees enjoyed free food provided by the Office of Multicultural Programs, and a prize give-away.  Winners of the give-away were awarded some great pieces of MIT swag from the campus bookstore, including  t-shirts, bags, coffee cups, lanyards, key chains, a blanket, and a MIT flag. In addition to the give-away, the participants also a played a intense game of diversity BINGO which encouraged individuals to break out of their comfort zone and meet some new friends.
