Meet the September 2015 Students of the Month

On-Campus Student: Emily Brandt

Emily is a Political Science major from Beloit pursuing a Certificate in Leadership Studies. She chose to get involved with the Department because she has held leadership positions in the organizations she has been a part of in her life. Emily had heard about the certificate from a friend and knew she wanted to advance skills she already had. Her favorite class so far has been LDRS 300. She says Dr. Greenleaf made the class very hands-on and it was eye-opening for her. These things combined took part in making the class so interesting. Due to that class, she knows everyone has the ability to be a leader and what characteristics a good leader has. Outside of school, Emily likes to watch Netflix with her roommates, spend time with her family, volunteer, and go to art museums. On campus, she is involved with 12 organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, and Student Government Association.

Virtual Student: Matt Heiman

Matt is from Baileyville and is pursuing a Master's in Business Administration. He got involved with the department when he took LDRS 801 as an elective for his degree. He wanted to learn how to be a good leader, not just a manager. LDRS 801 has challenged Matt to look at leadership differently than he has before. He has also learned what leadership styles are most effective in different types of situations. Outside of working on school, Matt likes hunting, fishing, golfing, woodworking, and doing part time construction projects. He also enjoys spending time with his family at his brother's football games on the weekends.

International Student: Li Yuyang (Moon)
