“I am in CFANS, and I eventually want to work in a hospital setting, working with patients, and help to improve people's lives. I improved my skills on talking to people from all different backgrounds and perspectives, making connections and an impact on first-year students, and I got experience working as a part of a team. I also learned my leadership style, which has given me so much more confidence when I am in front of a group of people.” Keighly – Nutrition Major and former Orientation Leader
