Turning Leadership into a Career
Tuesday, February 2, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, February 2, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Career opportunities pop up in some of the most
unexpected places. As people prepare to join or further themselves
within the working world, it is imperative that they know how to
use their leadership skills to impress potential employers on a
moment’s notice. In this workshop, representatives from the Career
Center will teach students how to succinctly summarize their
leadership skills in an extraordinary, professional manner that
will grab employers’ attention.
What does your body language say?
Tuesday, March 1, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, March 1, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
A roll of the eyes, a shrug of the shoulders, a wave of
the hand – it is incredibly easy to contradict a verbal
communication with even the smallest non-verbal gesture, such as
these. As leaders, it is incredibly important to know the value of
body language. Leaders should be able to present themselves in a
confident and appropriate manner in all forms of conduct, both
verbal and non-verbal. Come join us as the MSMC Improvisation group
teaches the “do’s” and “don’ts” of non-verbal communication.
Tuesday, April 5, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, April 5, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
People often look to leaders as examples of integrity,
honor, and character. While there is no fine print indicating such
requirements, we consent to public scrutiny as soon as we step into
a position of leadership. While it may not be fair, leaders must
hold themselves to a higher moral and ethical standard than do many
other people in order to maintain a positive reputation. In this
workshop, we will discuss the difficulties, temptations, and
pressures of maintaining integrity while being a leader in the
End of the Year Celebration Brunch
Sunday, May 1, 10:15 am, DC 110
What a great year! Seniors will present their final projects and
we will discuss how the themes from the semester fit together like
puzzle pieces, forming the best version of ourselves. There will be
food, drink, thought-provoking conversation, laughter – it will be
a fantastic way to celebrate all the hard work of the semester!
It’s sure to be a fun time!
