Students have the opportunity to unleash their inner rockstar while honing their leadership skills next semester.
Team Bradley is an overnight retreat for various campus leaders that takes place once a year.
The theme for this year’s Team Bradley which is Jan. 22 and 23, is “Unleash Your Inner Rockstar.”
“The retreat is facilitated by Leaders Instilling Knowledge through Cooperative Service, or LINCS, which is a program for seniors who are interested in community involvement and leadership after graduation,” said Jenny Van Kirk, one of 12 members of LINCS. “One of the main functions of LINCS is to present topics such as team building, leadership style and development, and communication for other organizations on campus.”
During the weekend of Team Bradley, LINCS will present two large group activities and four breakout sessions, Van Kirk said.
The activities and sessions cover topics within the categories of communication, leadership development, leadership styles and transitions. There will also be two speakers who will reinforce these and other topics.
“Students come home from Team Bradley with a better understanding of how they can move from a ‘back up singer’ to a ‘shining star in the spotlight,’ ” said LINCS member Jessica Fabiszak. “Whoever is interested in growing as a leader should pick up an application for Team Bradley.”
Team Bradley is a great place for students to go if they want to bring to light their true leadership potentials, Fabiszak said.
“My first experience at Team Bradley was last year and it was one of the most intriguing events I have been to since I started Bradley because it brings out the leader inside you that you never knew you had,” she said. “At Team Bradley, you will find yourself opening up to other students like you never imagined while having lots of fun bonding with them. Team Bradley is a place where students of all leadership levels can find a place to belong.”
Registration forms will be available starting Nov. 2 and can be found in the Lewis J. Burger Center in the basement of Harper Hall, or by e-mailing LINCS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The forms are due Nov. 24. There is a $60 fee for Team Bradley, which includes the hotel room, dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday.
Transportation will also be provided on Friday afternoon to the hotel and back to campus on Saturday afternoon.
“In the past, some organizations have sponsored group members to attend the retreat, thus covering part or all of the cost,” Van Kirk said. “Interested students should check with their organizations to see if this option may be available to them.”
