Sadie Robertson: A Leader in Faith and Love

A few years ago my brother made me watch this show with him about a family in the South, the Robertsons, that made millions of dollars on duck calls. It sounded ridiculous to me, so I was already set on hating it. I’m not one to watch reality TV shows, because it’s just too easy…

What I Learned My First Semester at CMU

On the Library The library was created for a reason, you probably should use it instead of sitting in your dorm watching Netflix. Sometimes you will run into people who use the library as a social gathering spot (yes, even during exam week), try to refrain from hitting them with your laptop because that doesn’t end…

Encouraging the Heart

As a protocol requirement for all Leadership Advancement Scholars, we must read an assigned leadership book, create and interactive project reflecting the book and present everything to our LDR 100 class. The book given to my group is titled Encouraging the Heart.  It explained the best ways for you to be a respected and even…

COM 267L

When applying for the required classes for the Leadership Advancement Scholarship, I immediately panicked when I read “Intro to Debate.” I’ve never been one to argue with others although my public speaking skills are decent. I was terrified that I would step in front of a class of 20 people and choke, therefore, resulting in…

Psychology

Taught by Dr. Matthew Prewett, PSY 100 was an interesting and beneficial course that I will be able to apply to my life. Although this course is not required for my major it will help me to complete my minor in Leadership. The information I have learned for it will come in handy throughout the…

A Spark for Leadership

Having never attended any sort of leadership conference in high school, I had little expectations for “Spark.” I arrived with an open mind ready to experience something new and to grow in my leadership skills. After all attendees were put into several small groups, my team set out to complete one of the many activities set…

Wolfs and Water Parks and Connections Oh My!

A requirement of the Leadership Advancement Scholarship is to attend the Connections Leadership Conference during our Freshman year. This conference was opened to all leaders on CMU’s campus who wished to further their leadership skills and wanted to meet more leaders like themselves. All 49 members of my cohort attended Connections along with several members…

Mentor/ Mentee Retreat

The mentor mentee relationship is all what you make of it. You can be best friends or complete strangers, someone to confide in or someone who you awkwardly wave at in passing on campus. I was one of the lucky few who gained a best friend when I was given a mentor. After you spend…

Leadership Safari

I can’t say that prior to my first semester at CMU I wasn’t nervous. I was dreading that the first week would be a terrible time of homesickness and trying to figure out how to live with three people I’d never met before and convincing them I really wasn’t socially awkward. However, Central Michigan University has…
