BOLD Programs offered Fall 2015

Leadership 101

This four-part series is designed for students who aspire to become campus leaders. Students acquire the skills they need to overcome the barriers that may get in their way. They learn the benefits of becoming a leader, discover their leadership style and build the self-confidence needed for success.


Offered every Wednesday in October from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the House of Benedict. Please RSVP to Joan Henehan at


Professional Development I

Many students graduate from college unprepared for the job search that awaits them. Preparing in advance can make you more attractive to employers, and that means they are more likely to hire you. In addition to visiting the Office of Career Development and getting involved in extracurricular activities, students should participate in the Professional Development Series prior to graduation.

Offered every Wednesday in November from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the House of Benedict. Please click here to register for this series.


Student Life enhances the development of students as lifelong learners and leaders by supporting them throughout the progression of their academic careers.
