Lessons learned from Memorial Student Leadership Conference (MSLC) 2017. These thoughts were spurred by Director of Student Life Dr. Jennie Massey's opening remarks for the conference, and were reinforced by the keynote speaker, Mr. Seamus O'Regan, MP.

Jennie and Seamus both talked about the oft-haphazard decision making that led to their achievements. The truth about this reinforcing loop is that no matter where you are in the process, you can do something to make it to the next step. No, not every moment will be virtuous – the cycle is not that virtuous. It is a cycle nonetheless, and that's the thing about cycles: they do not stop.
