STUDENT/FACULTY COMMENTS FROM PREVIOUS COLLEGE ETHICS SYMPOSIUMS
Sassy Chastain - Columbia College: Despite the diversity of group members and perspectives, we all had one thing in common: mutual respect for one another, our values, and viewpoints.
Meghan Nedow - St. Andrews University: All the facilitators and speakers were well educated and had very successful careers and had faced difficult ethical issues ... I liked hearing about how they dealt with such things and how it helped them grow as a person ... it was also interesting to hear about other things that influenced them and helped them become successful ... it really got me thinking about my future and where I am now and where I would like to be in the future ... also, the activities outside of the ethics discussions were so much fun!
Student from Hampden Sydney College: This has been a life changing experience. It was not only a blessing, but refreshing as well to be surrounded and engaged with peers of such intellect and strong personal insight.
Student from the College of the Ozarks: This has been a great experience in the fact that it has refocused my priorities of ethics and how it should be the forefront of all decisions. It is easy to forget about ethics and just get caught up in the world. By always being ready to practice ethics will help me in the future.
Student from Queens University: Attending the College Ethics Symposium has been an incredible experience, and would recommend any college senior to attend. I have gained a new level of self-evaluation as far as my own ethics.
Student from the Citadel: The ethics seminar was great. We had excellent speakers and facilitators. The small group discussion was amazing. We got to meet a diverse group of students and discuss out views on different ethical situations.
Student from Flagler College: The College Ethics Symposium allowed me to not only meet students from other faith based and ethical backgrounds, but to learn and grow from them as an individual.
Scott Goddard (Vice President for Student Affairs for Davis Elkins College) as quoted in the January 16, 2014 edition of the Randolph County News: I've been struggling a bit to put the Ethics Symposium trip into words, Goddard says. I've not seen or experienced anything like it. It was a well-coordinated event that focused on the students, and it was time well spent with a group of people, all resulting in one of the best trips that I've participated in with students.
Dr. Glenn Bryan (Asst. Professor of Management for Ohio Wesleyan University): Those who attended the Symposium said that it was an incredible experience and an extremely important workshop for graduating seniors ... It was an excellent opportunity for students to discuss various issues with their peers as they prepare for their future careers,” said Dr. Bryan.
