Suggested attire for Leaders' Day participants is "business casual" (e.g. button-up shirts, blouses, sweaters, polo shirts, slacks, professional but comfortable dresses or skirts. We recommend students do not wear casual t-shirts, clothing with rips or tears, sweatshirts or jeans). Attendees will be walking around campus, so comfortable shoes are strongly encouraged. 

The Essay

Participants in Sullivan Leaders' Day will be asked to write responses to prompts given at the start of the essay writing. The essay is scheduled for one hour. The prompts for the Leaders' Day writing portion of the day will be based on the three required articles. Any additional reading or research will give you valuable depth for writing your responses and for discussions throughout the day. Come prepared to write from your own perspective and also show that you have considered other perspectives. 

Bring your favorite writing tool. The essay prompt, paper and copies of the three required articles will be provided prior to the writing session.
