2014 SLC Recap

Over 500 students from more than 100 schools attended last year's SLC, marking the highest attendance yet in SLC history . . . see highlights  from the 2014 SLC!

Look at what 2014 SLC scholarship recipients had to say!

  • Matt Ringle (student at Butler University) – My favorite portion of the conference was the session by Ben Mulling.  He spoke about early career steps that everyone should take and I plan to heed his advice on 1) discovering my niche in life and 2) not being afraid to fail.  The Career Roundtables session was also another enlightening session, as I was lucky to sit with Kim Wallin (Controller, State of Nevada) and Ginger White (Six Sigma Master Black Belt) and hear about their career experiences and early steps.  The conference was a great networking opportunity for myself among others, as it allowed me to practice working on creating small talk and my elevator speech with students and professionals that I’d never met before.
  • Leigh Compton (student at Eastern Kentucky University) – My favorite part of the conference was the Eli Lilly tour.  It was great to see their facility.  I also really enjoyed the Dallara Indy Car factory.  It was awesome getting to go “behind the scenes” and seeing the factory.  I also really enjoyed the sessions on networking and LinkedIn.

  • Charles McClellan (student at UT Martin) – My favorite part of the conference was having the opportunity to meet and network with various students from around the country who are also entering my chosen profession.
  • Abraham Parkison (student at Purdue University) – I enjoyed the “Student to CFO” presentation.  That by far made the trip worth it.  I learned that sometimes you have to make tough calls and live with them.  Those decisions are telling of who you are.
  • Geoff Schoeneck (student at Butler University) – My favorite part about the conference was the speakers that were there, they were all very good and had great things to share with students.
