The Crain All-University Leadership Conference was a few weeks ago and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was so much fun getting to know the officers of different organizations around campus and learning how to work with them!
The Crain All-Univesity Leadership Conference is the best leadership conference at SMU. It is open to people who are already leaders and others who want to further develop their leadership skills. Advisors are also welcome to come to learn how to better advise the amazing leaders at SMU! The Crain All-University Leadership Conference is sponsored by LEAD (Leadership, Education, Activities and Development), Student Senate, and The Division of Student Affairs.
We did this wonderful simulation called StarPower! It gave great insight to the world of the one percent. It was very interesting to see how power and greed affect certain people and leaders.
I left the conference with how to be an effective leader, promote diversity, and I learned how to build excitement about my organization around campus!
Overall, the conference was an absolutely amazing experience and I would not trade it for the entire world! I would recommend that everyone should go to next year’s conference!
