This past fall semester the LAS cohort went to the Connection’s Conference in Travers City, Michigan. Many groups from Central Michigan University met at the Great Wolf Lodge for a fun-filled weekend to learn about leadership styles, hear words of encouragement, and learn more about ourselves. A big thing that I focused on is how to learn to be more effective with my time. I was able to attended two key speakers that gave me great insight on how to be more useful with my time in every day life. It was also a great bonding experience for our cohort, and to make connections with people through other leadership communities on campus. From spending as many hours in the water park as possible( I acted like a little kid in a candy store) to playing hide and go seek in the resort’s lobby, I would say it was definitely a successful weekend. The memories I made, learning how to properly talk to other leaders, and gaining information to succeed in the real world, I felt like a new person the morning I got on the charter bus to head back to Central Michigan University.
