"My favorite UM memory are my experiences on the IMPACT Leadership Retreat. When I went on the retreat as a participant my freshman year it gave me the time to introspect on what I was passionate about and it completely catalyzed my college experience. I have had the honor of serving as a facilitator and coordinator each subsequent year and giving other freshman the same amazing experience I had has been the most rewarding thing I have done in college."
