Known as the campus 'living room,' thousands of people visit the University Memorial Center (UMC) every day to grab a bite to eat, enjoy free entertainment, shop the retail stores, study with free wireless Internet or just hang out. With a wide variety of student services and student group offices in the building and active student governance, the UMC is an exciting center for activism and community interaction. As a designated multicultural center, we celebrate diversity through food, dance, art, music and the free exchange of ideas.

I loved it!
It was a friendly and informal environement where everybody could express their own ideas, and where everybody's opinion mattered. It was useful to hear feedback on the elevator pitch exercise, learning how to convey your message according to the audience you have, and how to tell your story, with structure or tricks to capture attention. I think it will be very useful for me in the future.

The instructor was exceptional and she gave very good tips. However, the workshop could be more useful if we get specific examples of how to communicate (language, content, etc). There was too much casual conversation that could be replaced with practical exercises.

This was a very interesting and informative training. The presenter was super knowledgable, had good communication methods and was just a good presenter!

I thoroughly enjoyed the keynote speaker and lunch speaker. I was thrilled to have opportunities to meet other women across campus who are in, or pursuing, leadership roles. I Most enjoyed meeting female campus leaders and hearing their stories. I wanted more workshops and more dialogue. not all of the breakout speakers seemed well informed on the topics which they were covering and were disappointing. The amazing keynotes made up for this.

Knew most of it. Was obvious. Could have been more involved/detailed.
