The UT Lead Experience

UT Lead has been one of the greatest experiences of my college life. We have only been here for about two and a half weeks and I have already managed to make new friends. This program has taught me many different skills that I would surely need to help me succeed in my future endeavors. They took us to an etiquette dinner where we learned proper table etiquette so that when we go to fancy dinners with our bosses we won't look like fools. We also went white water rafting which taught us a lot about teamwork and how if we do things in a group we can overcome many different situations than a group of individuals. I have learned how to manage money, stay focused in class, and how to break down social barriers in a community in countless workshops and presentations throughout the program. I hope that many more students get to have the experiences that I have so that they too can learn to survive college and life.

  1. Great post! I really appreciate your feedback on the program and this class, I think. You not only listed out the things you liked the best, but the reasons why you liked them and how they were relevant and beneficial to you. Good job!

    I also agree that this program is and will continue to be invaluable to you as you go on through your college years.
