This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Posse Retreat at Camp Vacamas in New Jersey. As the Posse Mentor for 10 incoming first year Posse Scholars, (Trinity College, Class of 2020) from New York City, this retreat was an opportunity to get to know these merit-based scholarship students before they arrive at Trinity at the end of the month. For three days we laughed and cried, and we engaged in team building activities. First impressions? The students are pretty dope. They are smart, funny, thoughtful and a joy to be around. They have aspirations and high expectations for themselves and the group. I am really looking forward mentoring them and providing them with the skills to become the leaders of today and tomorrow.
