Sophomore Leadership Experience (SLE)

Sophomore Leadership Experience (SLE) is a three-day leadership and changemaking program for all CMC sophomores. Throughout the program students become more self-aware by learning about their personal style when working in groups, reflecting on their values and passions, and developing their confidence as a leader and changemaker. Students develop relationships with one another to strengthen the sophomore class community and to foster a culture of personal growth and responsibility. Students participate in various teambuilding activities including a low and high ropes course. Lastly, students identify ways to improve the CMC community. The retreat provides time for bonding with your classmates and connecting with one another around a bonfire!

Every student takes something different from the retreat.

“I loved the campfire – talking to people and making new friends,” says Andrew Sheets. Another SLE participant, Jennifer Dallego, agreed. “While I consider myself an open-minded person, I realized I had preconceived notions about people. I met a lot of cool people who I never would have talked to otherwise,” she says.

Registration for this program takes place in Spring 2017 for the Fall 2017 program.
