LEO Representative

Name: Carla Carballo

Hometown:

Hobbies:

3 Goals for LLSA:

  1. One event I would like to plan is a LEO-wide informal social. LEO is supposed to be about a community of diverse students; however, there are only two times we get together as a full LEO community (LEO orientation and the LEO banquet). I would like to plan one additional event that will provide an opportunity for all LEO members, especially LEO 1Ls, to interact in a more informal setting.
  2. A program I hope to implement is LEO-wide academic workshops. Last spring, the Academic Affairs VP held an academic reflections workshop in conjunction with BLSA. I think more academic interaction among LEO members would be beneficial for all participants. Therefore, I would work with folks such as Tina to provide academic workshops in collaboration with other LEO groups.
  3. Another initiative that I will tackle is developing a more robust LLSA/LEO alumni outreach program. Especially in this economic climate and difficult job market, developing and fostering deeper relationships with LLSA/LEO alumni can be an effective way to give LLSA/LEO students a competitive advantage in the job search.
