New Student Programs and the division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are collaborating to bring national speaker Odell Bizzell to campus on Monday, August 12 during Opening Week.
Please consider joining the incoming freshman class for Odell’s keynote address from 4:45-6:15pm in the Gibson Arena of the Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building. Odell is an inspirational storyteller who will challenge the audience members to laugh, think, and act. Through life-experience stories, he will help the audience to learn and practice empathy, develop leadership skills, and understand how to succeed as students and beyond. Odell’s message will be relevant and actionable. In addition to Odell’s keynote address, he will be working separately with student leaders from Residential Life and New Student Programs on being inspired, impactful, inclusive, and courageous leaders.
This is just one of the exciting additions being made to Opening Week programming, one we are thrilled to share with the entire campus community.
