The Department of Leadership Studies at FHSU invites high school juniors and seniors to experience college for a day. What makes this experience different from a typical campus tour? Not only will you get a sneak peak of what a college class is like, you’ll get the inside scoop about college life and studying Organizational Leadership - from a student who’s already here.
