Small in Size, Not in Opportunities

Leadership & Service

Opportunities are what you make of them.

You can enrich your college experience and grow as a leader by getting involved on campus and working to make the university a more engaged, inclusive and equitable community. Along the way, you can develop valuable leadership skills and experience that you can list on your résumé.

Everyone has something to contribute. How you live your life and your character will differentiate you as a leader. Student leaders inspire and encourage others to get involved. Effective leaders are those who are authentic and passionate about the activities they join and lead.

LR appealed to me for leadership opportunities because I knew being a smaller school would be more involved. I have the drive to be a leader, and doing things on the LR campus was important to me.

Community Service

Lenoir-Rhyne encourages students to become involved in community service as part of the university's mission to promote responsible leadership for service in the world.

Community service enriches the learning experience, teaches civic responsibility and strengthens communities. It also provides you with opportunities to apply what you are learning in class outside the classroom.
