"About Us" Project

The intent of this oral group project is to research the response of Millennials to relevant topics in their lives. Students will present issues relating to a selected theme, explore how this area is played out in their lives, deduce problems that may arise and propose solutions.  Students will work in small groups from their Breakout Group and will make an oral presentation.

Small groups will each focus on a theme or propose a topic for approval by your Faculty Mentor.                 

  1. Millennials' proactive response to a specific injustice or need
  2. Social media and healthy relationships
  3. Developing transferrable professional skills for 21st century careers
  4. The role of athletics in American colleges and universities
  5. Technology and undergrad education
  6. Influence of music on attitude and perceptiions
  7. Entertainment and ethics
