On Saturday, February 19th, the University of Evansville welcomed musician Jason LeVasseur on campus to be a part of its annual Student Leadership Conference. Students representing various organizations and clubs were invited to take part in several activities and workshops to discuss what it meant to be an effective leader, while also providing them with an opportunity to network with others.
As a student myself, I found the conference to be a very positive experience. I, along with everyone else, was able to spend a day reflecting on myself and what made me the “rockstar” of my life, as LaVasseur put it. I was also able to meet with people and get to know them in ways that would be difficult in a traditional everyday environment. I believe that events such as these have true value, especially at a time when many of us are becoming more and more isolated in light of the pandemic.
The event was held from 1:00 to 6:00 at Eykamp Hall. In addition to the activities, attendees were also given a t-shirt and treated to a taco dinner.
