Amanda's keynote  set a positive tone for our newest students. Amanda had them celebrating all the challenges they’d overcome, encouraged them to think about their unique strengths and interests, and empowered them to use their strengths to make a contribution to our campus. She got to know our campus and spoke like an insider thanks to her diligent preparation.  During the presentation and Q&A, our students were really engaged  – we had way more questions than we had time for!
