The Albers Undergraduate Leadership program was one of the most rewarding experiences of my undergraduate career at Seattle University. Through UGL, I led projects to improve our university, mentored others, made lifelong relationships, and most importantly, developed skills that will carry on throughout my life. I am grateful that UGL has provided opportunities to discover the leader in me.

UGL has given me the opportunity to identify my strengths and work on my weaknesses within an organization of elite Albers students. For me personally, it has helped me immensely with my confidence to speak to superiors and network with community leaders.
