  • A vibrant range of activities offers challenges to students’ thinking and expands their view of the world around them.
  • Students gain a sense of accomplishment while developing research skills and the ability to debate, communicate confidently and effectively, solve problems and think critically, reflectively and creatively.
  • These are meta-skills that have inherent, lifelong value, with universities and employers seeking candidates who possess them.
