2004 – Founding OrangeSeeds
Most first-year students are far from first seed in landing leadership positions within campus organizations.
But a new Student Association program, OrangeSeeds, will teach incoming first-year students leadership skills within the university environment and help them become actively involved in campus life.
SA Vice President Travis Mason presented a full report to the assembly last night on the SA-governed program. Beginning next fall, 44 incoming first-year students will be selected through a blind application process, and through six bi-monthly meetings, retreats, planning of a large service project and office hours, the students will learn how to be most effective in leadership positions at SU, Mason said.
