I chose to attend USF because I was interested in the Jesuit values. I believe that the values we strive for here at USF are foundations for students to become better people. When looking at this school I was drawn to it because of the diversity of the school. Finding a school that combines values and diversity was very important to me. The opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds was very important when looking at colleges. The last thing that drew me to USF is the city because it was my chance to experience something new and it is an amazing place to be. The city would be an extra teacher for me in addition to the knowledge I would gain while at USF.

I define leadership as being willing to take responsibility for the actions of not only yourself but others. A person is a leader when they try to help themselves and others reach a higher goal. In order to uphold our mission to Change the World from Here a person must be dedicated to the greater society. A person should be aware of what is going on in the world and know how they want to change the world. A person must believe in a cause and find those who are interested in it too and help them help their cause.
