It's the morning of our symposium with the University of the West Indies and the University of Trinidad and Toabgo and you can feel the nerves throughout the UofL students. It's definitely not because we're unprepared, but because we've worked so hard on this project and because we want to see it succeed. For the College Student Personnel students, it hits even closer to home as this is our passion and our future. We're excited to make connections and see the change on both UWI and UTT campuses with civic engagement and service.
It's been a long couple of months working with the students from Trinidad and Tobago. It's funny how similar and different we all are. However, it's great to see us all come together for a common purpose of creating a better student, faculty, and staff life in tertiary/higher education and in their surrounding communities.
