MSPDP 3 Supper Session –July 31 – August 7

“Ask Senior Staff” During Open Forum sessions, you will be able to get essential questions answered by senior staff – John Meany, Lauren Phillips, and Jake Meany.

Open Forum – 6:00 to 8:50PM

Open Forum is primarily student-directed time, meaning instruction is subject to the student(s) requests. In the evening from 6;00 to 8:50PM students are given the choice to take full advantage of staff by attending instructional electives; they also may choose to participate in both strategy games and team building activities.

Students are given the opportunity to act independently in a structured environment to make a decision (opportunity cost, a fundamental skill taught in the program) – building critical thinking, understanding the dynamics of communication and one’s power of choice, the characteristics of a young scholar.
