Three sophomore student leaders are learning about the power of collaboration on Transy’s campus. Whether it’s bringing a broader perspective to a screening of “Selma,” galvanizing the activism of a new generation, or rewriting the SGA constitution, the intersection of their organizations and talents is where deeper understanding often takes root.

Read more on our 1780 blog about how each of these students has already made meaningful connections on campus and beyond.

For Jonathan Neal, bringing people together is about motivating his generation to take action for long-term results. Of the many backgrounds working together, Sameer Ahmed says, “It’s more of an intercultural thing, appreciating that there are differences.” Ultimately, says Seth Wyatt, “It’s the liberal arts. You’re mixing methods, outcomes and ideas. That’s how creativity works.”
