Seamus Crowley ’18 studied communication and decision making skills.

I participated in a program called MiddCORE this past summer. MiddCORE is a month-long educational program run by Middlebury College and hosted by Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, NV within walking distance to Lake Tahoe. Throughout the month I completed 160+ hours of mentor­-driven workshops designed to strengthen skills in leadership, collaboration, strategic thinking, persuasive communication, financial literacy, negotiation, ethical decision­-making, crisis management, and entrepreneurship. The most exciting moment of the month for me was a consulting project I worked on with a group for Peet’s Coffee & Tea. We spent a week preparing a deliverable on how the company could market coffee to millennials more successfully, and finally at the end of the week we had the opportunity to present our ideas to the CEO of the company. It was incredibly exciting to be solving a real-world problem and knowing that your ideas could end up being implemented across the nation. Having such a large responsibility for an amazing opportunity made the process very rewarding.
