Maggie, how does CUC provide opportunities to inspire leadership?

Next year I'll be a resident assistant on a floor for upperclassmen. Before coming here, being an RA wasn't something I ever thought I would do. But I've been inspired being at CUC, seeing the current RAs working with students, and it made me want to try it too. With basketball, I'm not only a team member—I also have to be a leader for the students who are younger than I am.

How is your experience here helping you build a successful future?

I'm learning a whole variety of things during my time here—through my classes, my campus job, and participating in clubs and athletics. Being at a smaller school allows me to meet all kinds of people and get involved in things that I might not be able to do at a bigger university. It's helping make me a well-rounded person.
