This was an improved section to MISL 2018 that exposed students to valuable information through presentations on diverse topics related to higher education. During the two weeks, the students participated in the following workshops: A-G requirements; College and University Admissions Requirements; FAFSA; Resume Building; and transitioning from High School to College.
Students were challenged to choose enrichment classes that were completely new to them. These classes exposed the students to try something out of their comfort zone. Classes offered were: Folkloric Dance (from the states of Oaxaca, Sinaloa, and Veracruz), Hip-Hop Dance, Jazz Dance, Guitar, Drama, and Arts and Crafts.
In this section of MISL, the students were involved in a variety of innovative leadership activities that exposed them to ground level teambuilding and trust challenges.
