Summer Leadership Institute
June 21-23, 2013
Dont wait until school starts to become a part of the Bison Family! Jump right into NDSU by being a part of the Summer Leadership Institute!
North Dakota State University invites you, as an incoming student, to participate in a three-day Summer Leadership Institute (SLI). SLI offers you an opportunity to enhance your leadership potential, create new friendships and hit the ground running when school begins.
The Summer Leadership Institute is here for all incoming students get acclimated to NDSU and to get involved early in their college career. Often, new students feel the need to wait or acclimate to their new surroundings before getting involved. SLI will help each participant to develop more effective leadership skills. With so many opportunities to get involved, lead, and create change, NDSU wants all incoming students to start shaping their future as soon as they set foot on campus.
By being a part of the SLI, you can expect:
Realize your strengths as a college student through participation in interactive workshops.
Expand your leadership aptitude through experiential team building activities.
Connect to the University through the development of new relationships and the knowledge of campus.
SLI 2013 will be offered Friday at 5:00 p.m. through Sunday 2:00pm, June 21-23, 2013. SLI is held on the NDSU campus.
Limited spots are available, so apply today! Registration cost is $129, which includes all meals, sessions, materials and lodging! Last chance to register is June 10, 2013.
For those of you participating in Orientation on Monday, June 24, you are welcome to stay on campus overnight on Sunday for $18. This will help you to be ready for your Monday, June 24 Orientation Session. One of our student leaders will stay with you through the day and you can continue the fun from the weekend and learn even more about campus!
NDSU student leaders will act as group facilitators ensuring you get to know other participants and maximize what you learn in the workshops. They will help you build strong bonds and will help the group learn to be an effective team. Student leaders also will answer questions you may have about college life.
Reserve your spot now as space is limited. Applicants will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Payment is due when you register; we accept checks or credit cards. Due to the purchasing of food and materials for SLI, we are unable to process any refunds after June 14, 2013.
