What is the Howdy TECHsans Leadership Series?

The Howdy TECHsans Leadership Series (HTLS) has been re-imagined from the traditional early move-in leadership program to now a semester-long series!
The new Howdy TECHsans Leadership Series is no longer an early-move-in program and now a leadership series that begins with Orientation in August (Fall Class) or January (Spring Class) which participants go at their own pace throughout the series to complete program expectations.
The HTLS provides a group of residential students the opportunity to participate in leadership and community service workshops and social activities. As an added benefit for participating in the program participants will receive HTLS promotional items (t-shirt, drawstring bag, off-campus entertainment during the program, and additional incentives based on the year).

There are 3 Tiers for engagement for the leadership series. Participants will engage at the base level to advance to the next level. Participants must complete sessions identified by each tier to move on to the next tier from the beginning of the program (August/January) through the end of the program (December/April). Each tier of sessions will offer a variety of different opportunities to assist student leader development, recognize program accomplishments and connect students with peers, staff, and faculty!

During the program, participants will:

  • Connect with residential students throughout campus
  • Participate in college success and leadership training sessions
