The Edge Leadership Experience

The Edge

The Edge Leadership Experience is a unique opportunity for first-year incoming students to learn and practice leadership skills.

The Edge Leadership Experience will take place August 23-25, 2016. Applications are available online and are due July 15, 2016 at noon. Look for us and our table during the June Orientation sessions to say hello and get more information. 

During the Edge Leadership Experience you will be involved in workshops and group discussions that will help you:

  • learn to be a leader
  • make meaningful connections
  • meet new friends
  • inspire others
  • get involved

Who is involved?

One hundred and fifty first-year students from all backgrounds will be selected for the program. We encourage applications from those who were involved in student organizations and leadership positions in high school and from students who have not had previous opportunities but want to make leadership a part of their college experience. Upper-division students who are current student leaders serve as facilitators for the program. The Edge Leadership Experience is coordinated by Student Life.

What to expect

If accepted, you will be placed in a small group designed to enhance your campus connections. Small groups will participate in workshops, presentations, activities, and challenges that strengthen bonds and provide an engaging experience.
