Ignite Leadership Pre-Orientation
August 20-24, 2013
Ignite Leadership is a five-day program designed to give incoming students the chance to learn about the many forms of student leadership and involvement at Kenyon. Participants will explore the topic of leadership, learn more about the many opportunities for campus involvement, and build connections with peers and upperclass leaders. The program will be facilitated by staff from the Student Activities Office and student facilitators who are active student leaders at Kenyon.
During Ignite Leadership, students will develop leadership skills by participating in an outdoor adventure program (a low and high ropes course), experiential leadership team builders and initiatives, and group discussions. Students will discover their strengths and improve theirleadership competencies. Topics such as leadership styles, time management, and campusresources will be explored. In addition, students will have the opportunity to meet with student leaders and administrators to learn about their leadership experiences and discover how they can be active members of the Kenyon community.
The program begins on campus on Tuesday, August 21. The group will leave campus on Wednesday morning for a two-night experience at a retreat center and will return to campus on Friday to engage in an on-campus leadership experience and prepare for orientation which begins on Saturday, August 24, 2013. The combination of group activities and discussions will make this experience not only educational, but fun. Don't miss out on the opportunity to be a part of Ignite Leadership!
