You 2,000 represent a continuation of what’s
been going on for the last 22 years here at Central Michigan University. what
we’re doing is helping you become the leaders for the next generation.
Congratulations! You did it! You made it to college and by the way not just any college you
made it to a fantastic institution. Leadership Safari is the way to get to
know campus, the community and to find yourself getting involved in everything.
It’s a week of really getting to know yourself. You get to get acclimated with the
campus before everybody else does. You get to meet people and it makes it so much
easier to make new friends. Because if we didn’t have Leadership Safari we would
be coming into not knowing anybody and being very shy of like the first week
but we got that out of the way for us believing started so it makes us more
comfortable to start at school year off. At the Central Michigan, we graduate
leaders. We graduate individuals that had the tactical skills and the talents to be leaders but we hone those skills here. And because of your passion. Be it
helping others. Be it educating others it is about that passion that will take you
through. You and I agree on one fundamental truth
and that is that leadership matters. You’ve got the opportunity to stretch
your mind and to do wonderful things. Challenge yourself. Fire Up Chips!
