Badgers Leading Badgers…Some More!

Hello Badgers!

I begin first with an apology. I have been gone from the Brock blogosphere for far too long! I have missed connecting with you future Badgers, and I am happy to be back. It ended up that I put far too much on my plate last semester, and I simply couldn’t eat it all….but I am happy to be back and typing away with and for all of you this semester!

This coming Saturday, Badgers from all walks of Brock will be joining together with our colleagues from Niagara College and the surrounding Niagara communities to celebrate all that the Brock & Niagara College communities have to offer in the way of innovative leadership. This weekend is the annual Niagara Student Leadership Summit, once again being hosted by Brock University. Following on the coat tails of the National conference which Brock also hosted earlier this year, this Summit gives Brock students an opportunity to share one of the things that almost all Badgers are united in being passionate about: Leadership.

Engaging each other in discussion about anything-and-everything concerning leadership and leadership practices, the Summit is one that most organizations on campus look forward to each year, and this year’s Summit is sure to be better than ever! The Summit is free to attend for all Brock students, and is sure to ignite or fuel some passionate leadership spark within all of our Badgers. It’s an all-day affair which gives folks who have ties to the community and a stake at Brock a chance to see what exactly Niagara-region students get up to when we aren’t in class. Through this conference, people get to see that presenters and all students of the area really do care about what is going on in the global context; and the Summit gives us an unique opportunity to develop insight and expand each other’s horizons in the community and the academic world.*

Featuring a keynote from speaker Stuart “Twitchy” Ellis-Myers, this year’s Summit is sure to top all Summits of the past and it’s just one of the events of the future that your soon-to-be Badgers can look forward to participating in!

Brock On, Badgers!

About Iain

Hello Future Badgers! My name is Iain, and I am a fourth year Concurrent Education I/S B.A./B.Ed. student (teaching subjects in Drama & History) and Head Resident in the Residence Department here at Brock! First thing’s first, I love this newfound second home that I call Brock and I’m hoping I can pass off all of that love to all of you! This summer I spent an incredible four weeks teaching and living at an Outdoor Education Camp in the Algonquin Highlands and would love to tell you all about it! Through the experiences as an actively involved University student here at Brock, I have seen that maintaining a social life, as well as an academic life is just as important to becoming a well-rounded and balanced student (it’s almost like eating both your fruits and vegetables!) In the coming months, I hope to pass this knowledge on to you, to ensure that your love of all things Brock grows strong. Brock On Badgers!
