This past weekend we took the most amazing group of first year students to Cedarmore Crossings in Bagdad, Kentucky. Let me back track for a second... the very first time I went to Cedarmore, I was a freshman myself as a LEADer, and now, two years later, I had the opportunity to return to Cedarmore as a director. Two years ago, I looked up to my LEAD directors and knew eventually I wanted to be that director for someone else. My student involvement experience started with Freshman LEAD and has only grown because of it!
Enough about me, let’s talk about retreat!! For the first time this year all of the students really got to know each other and bond over s’mores, Uno, games, and arts and crafts! Many students’ (including myself) competitive sides came out during the song game!
I hope Freshman Lead gives to my students what it gave to me two years ago!
Freshmen LEAD embodies service and leadership to engage incoming first year students with the campus and Louisville community.
