Every student took away something different from the trip. “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.

Each fall, incoming sophomores have an opportunity to apply and expand their leadership knowledge during a four-day experiential learning trip, the Sophomore Leadership Experience, held at a camp in the mountains above CMC. The trip includes large and small group activities designed to give students increased self-awareness, facilitate group bonding and develop leadership skills. The program includes a day spent on Low and High Ropes courses and is put on by the Kravis Leadership Institute with support from the Dean of Students Office. KLI will subsidize this program in its entirety.This year the program will run from September 16-18, 2016.  All students selected to participate in the program and cancel after August 8 will need to provide a $150 material fee to KLI.
