Learning to Lead

Molloy's Student Leadership Conference: "The Best Three Days of My Life."
On August 21, I was one of 41 Molloy students who embarked on a trip to Princeton, New Jersey, to spend three days at the Chauncey Conference Center. This trip, sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs, was the first step to a life of leadership. It was an amazing opportunity.
The three days were characterized by early mornings, gorgeous views, five-star meals, and bucket loads of fun. We took part in various icebreakers and activities to get to know one another, and even played a kickball game, while learning about important life skills such as public speaking, tips for academic success, and getting involved on campus. Some of the activities brought out the best parts of us, and even helped some of the shyer people emerge out of their shells. It was so beautiful to see. It was incredible to be able to form such strong bonds with people I didn't know a week ago, and I can easily say August 21 to August 23 were the best three days of my life.
