Site Visits Round 1!

Last week, I had the great fortune to travel on site visits all over the South. It was amazing and so inspiring to spend a week interacting in person with chapters instead of sitting in front of my computer all day at the national office in San Francisco :)

Highlights include:
  • Being present for the very first mentor session at University of Georgia led by the fabulously upbeat Ellie Schultz
  • Savoring the delicious feta fries from the famous "The Grill" in Athens, GA over a productive meeting with the UGA Executive Board
  • Staying up till 3am for a passionate brainstorming session with Jonathan Safron of Vanderbilt, despite the important debate he was scheduled to participate in the next day (what a trooper!)
  • Attending a mentoring session at Northwood High School in Pittsboro, NC with the University of North Carolina chapter--I was so impressed about how ready for college those students were!
  • Watching more late night Jersey Shore than I've ever seen with Chapter Director Wes Wollard at UNC

Check out more photos from the trip at, username, password "strive" and look out for a video in the next few weeks!
