What Attendees Are Saying

“I enjoyed hearing about IFSA’s guiding principles and philosophies . I also enjoyed the risk management session. Learning about the intentionality IFSA demonstrates while designing and implementing its programs was especially refreshing.”
Daniel Kampsen, Lafayette College

“I liked that we moved around throughout the day and met a lot of people–I never felt as if any one thing was going on too long. It’s was a snappy overview of a lot of different aspects of IFSA and I went home feeling like I was ready to navigate this organization with my students.”
Emily Watson, Ivy Tech Community College

“Everything was wonderful. The communication before arrival was fantastic, and the whole day was planned with great thought and attention to detail. Thank you!”
