Sharing quality time in a seminar with the dean of the college can help shape the rest of your college experience-if not the rest of your life. Catherine Swoboda, ('08 agronomy), who works for the World Food Prize Foundation in Des Moines, says the Dean's Leadership Seminar was a highlight of her years at ISU. "It taught me the joy of thinking analytically and rigorously and the pleasure of generously sharing ideas and knowledge. And for a freshman to have access to instruction by the deans was very impressive," Swoboda says.
