Launch is a yearlong program designed to promote your success in college and empower your academic, social and personal growth. Launch is tailored to you, offering you the freedom to pursue topics you love while working directly with your own mentorship team.
The beauty of Launch is that it allows you to set your own course. You will enjoy immersive courses dedicated to an area of interest and will experience unique features like a personal development summit, a success hub and a lab dedicated to self-growth. You will be intellectually challenged, inspired by a panel of advisors focused on your success, and will gain a deeper understanding of your unique strengths and passions.
I am more open and always willing to talk to people whether I am having a good day or a bad day. I tell my mentees, ‘Listen, I am not a person of authority. I go to school with you. We’re friends. It’s like being a big brother.’ ” - Bennie Patterson '22
