Students Encouraged to Apply for LeaderShape

The applications for LeaderShape are now available and due by Friday, February 25. LeaderShape is a six day development program that teaches students how to “lead with integrity”. This year’s program will be held from May 8 – May 13.

Past LeaderShape attendees have gone on to hold positions within UPUA, THON, Homecoming, and the four Greek Councils. This is a chance for students from all grades to spend time with their peers working on team building skills and how to affect campus development.

At the end of the six-day experience, participants will:

  • Increase their commitment to acting consistently with core ethical values, personal values, and convictions
  • Enhance their capability to develop and enrich relationships as well as strengthening their commitment to respecting the dignity and contributions of all people
  • Embrace the belief in a healthy disregard for the impossible
  • Develop the capacity to produce extraordinary results

Fran Roach, a 2008 LeaderShape alum, encourages all students to apply and attend with an open mind. “The experience was incredible. I went into not knowing what to expect and came out with a tight-knit family of over 70 Penn State students and staff.”

The program is held at the Hartman Retreat Center in Milroy, Pa. and only costs $100 for the students thanks to the sponsorship of several on-campus donors such as the Office of Residence Life, the Greek Councils and the Office of Student Affairs, to name a few. This is a great opportunity for students looking for a way to get more involved in the Penn State community by meeting a diverse group of people and learning valuable skills that will last a lifetime.

Stoop Kid’s Afraid to Leave the Stoop

Editor and graduating senior Caity Rogowski writes about living the questions, facing fears, sharing burdens, and accepting reality.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
