Student Leader: __________

Going from high school to college was a big transition, and EAS140 and small groups helped ease that transition. I liked how the class encouraged us to work things out on our own or in a small group but gave us support when we needed it, I really liked the "we're all in this together" mentality that was stressed from the first day to the last day, and I wanted to help others feel the same sense of accomplishment and community I felt."

A memory that remains with me from my Student Leader days is:
Turbine testing day. It usually felt like complete chaos, but it was great seeing what my students had come up with.
