What They Are Saying On Facebook

A prospective student posted a question in the group for first-year Leadership Fellows Program students. What follows are the responses.

Question: Tell me your favorite thing about LFP and why. (Or why you chose LFP/Eastern, whatever you want to say is fine.) go! 

“Leadership Fellows Program is a great way to meet people with common goals. It is a great way to learn to lead and follow. And it helped me in particular to have the courage to get involved throughout the campus."

"Leadership Fellows Program is an awesome place to nurture leadership and help it to grow. Also, it is awesome to see such a diverse crowd be so similar and quick to make friends."

"My favorite thing about the Leadership Fellows Program is probably the whole process of gaining the knowledge of myself and of leadership techniques that I need to be the best servant leader I can be. It's also an incentive to join clubs, which are super-fun! I've met some great people and made awesome friends in this program."

"My favorite part is the fact that we have so many leaders from so many different backgrounds in one place helping each other and guiding each other to be better leaders."

"The fact that I get a grant for being a leader, something that I would probably do even if there wasn't a Leadership Fellows Program. Thanks Eastern!"

"Favorite thing about the Leadership Fellows Program is probably the diversity of people and how we've all come together and we are all just so close.....and I chose EU because of the awesome community. All Jesus all the time. Word."

"My favorite thing about the Leadership Fellows Program is you find real friends really fast and basically have a family at school, which makes the transition to college a whole lot easier!"

"LFP = family."

"My favorite thing is definitely the friends with a common goal, as diverse as we are. We all want to learn more about ourselves not only as leaders but as Christians in general. We learn so much in a week and continue to learn more from the upperclass students and Tess and it's just so great. Helps with confidence and also really getting comfortable with the campus a week before all the other freshman get here! You're gonna love it. And also I chose EU because it just felt right... God was so present and everyone is just so pleasant! Can't wait for you to come experience it!"

"My favorite thing about Leadership Fellows Program is that you get to meet so many people with great leadership qualities from different backgrounds. The friends you make are awesome!"

"My favorite thing about Leadership Fellows Program is...the people. The idea that you learn about yourself and leading and following and God all while making friends that bring out the best in you and I love how it has challenged me. It gives you a support system and more opportunities to learn things that I think everyone in college should have the chance to!"

"Leadership Fellows Program teaches us how to LEAD at Eastern by FOLLOWING Christ! That + the family + the grant = an unforgettable experience.”
