Camp Eagle is open to 60 incoming first-year students and transfer students who have less than 12 college credits. These students will develop more leadership skills and build friendships with other rising student leaders. Participants will create the foundation to continue their involvement in service, student activities, and student organizations once at USI.
Activities at Camp Eagle are led by USI faculty, staff and student leaders known as the Eagle Leaders!
Above all, you should attend because Camp Eagle is fun! But also, Camp Eagle is your opportunity to dive into leadership opportunities at USI. You will meet current USI student leaders and staff who will help you plug into fun and enriching student activities and organizations. You will meet other incoming freshmen who share these same desires to be a leader in college and start making connections with faculty and staff who are dedicated to helping you reach your full leadership potential.
