Leadership Program: Leadership Launch
Every September, the office of Leadership and Student Development, in partnership with the Lutz Center for Community Service, Office of Residence Life, Office of Student Activities, Commuter Life, and the Tompkins College Center, hosts a Leadership Launch reception to honor all of our student leaders who support the campus. All students who serve in a leadership role on campus are invited to attend this reception. This includes, Orientation Leaders, Resident Assistants, Athletic Captains, Service Scholars, Emerging Leaders, Conference Service Assistants, Peer Academic Leaders, Ambassadors, and students holding elected positions.
The reception is usually held on the third Thursday of every September from 7-8pm. One Student Leader is chosen to give the welcome address, and one Cedar Crest College Alumnae is invited back to give the keynote address. Immediately following the presentations, students have an opportunity to network with faculty, staff, alumnae and their peers. Students consistently rank this reception as a must attend.
Former student leaders to have offered the welcome include:
Aarti Ramdaney, c/o 2012
Kaitlin Oswald, c/o 02013
Past Cedar Crest Alumnae speakers:
Elizabeth “Liz” Ortiz, c/o 2001
Jamie Karpovich c/o 2005
