Cedarville University invites high school students who have applied or been accepted by the school to attend the CORE Leadership Conference on Jan. 17-18, 2014.

The conference serves as an introduction to what leadership looks like on campus and provides students with the opportunity to meet others who will be in their class. Students will learn about Cedarville’s core values, how they can be involved on campus and principles about leadership in general through large and small group sessions, along with fun activities. Speakers include Dr. Thomas White, Cedarville University’s president; Jon Wood, vice president of student life and Christian ministries; Lt. General Loren Reno, dean of the school of business administration; Mark Irving, director of discipleship ministries; and Dr. Thomas Mach, professor of history. Worship will be led by Cedarville University’s HeartSong ministries. On Friday, students can attend pre-conference sessions led by current students and faculty, as well as attend a party presented by Student Life.

The event costs $75 and includes all meals for the weekend, as well as the opportunity to stay on campus with a current student at no additional cost. Students have the option of attending a campus visit from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. Preconference sessions are from 4-6 p.m. on Friday.
