The Upper Midwest Campus Compact Consortium's Student Civic Leadership Institute was the most amazing thing that I have experienced in a long, long time. It is truly what my soul has been searching for. It is justification for all the hard work we do, from Student Senate to service-learning. I returned a rejuvenated and refreshed student who is willing and ready to begin the change."
