WHAT DID DELEGATES LOVE ABOUT MCC16?

I can safely say that my experience at MCC is one that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Maybe it was the fact that every person I talked to was incredible.
Maybe it was the fact that only 5 minutes into the first day at the conference I made a friend who I will remember for a long long time.
Maybe it was the fact that you meet people incredibly different and yet so alike.
Maybe it was just the fact that it was held at an amazing place.
Maybe it was the late night walks exploring the city with people who were complete strangers a week ago and now you feel like you have known them for years.
Maybe I’ll remember MCC for something completely different.
But one thing is for certain: I will remember MCC.
— Clive Figueroa, MCC16 Delegate

What Do Past Delegates have to say about the Millennium Campus conference?

I encourage anyone who aspires to make positive local or global development to apply for next years Millennium Campus Conference. Thanks to this years conference, I am more confident and informed on how to go about making smart changes in Haiti.

Best of all, I had the privilege of speaking with students all around the world. We tackled global political issues that are avoided by most, and together, we brainstormed potential solutions through discussion groups. Through our conversations I’ve learned that although we all come from different continents/nations, in some way or another we are all the same....

Thank you to all of the Delegates that shared this experience with me! It was a pleasure speaking with you! Although the conference is over, the revolution is not. Now we must take action!
— Jenny Michel, MCC15 Delegate
At MCC15, it was incredible to see so many passionate leaders come together to create sustainable change. Students heard a variety of perspectives on global issues, coming together to brainstorm and collaborate on scalable solutions. We can’t wait for Girl Up Campus leaders to participate again next year.
— Julie Willig, Girl Up (MCC15 Partner)
My experience at MCC15 was exceedingly extraordinary. Never have I seen young passionate people so zealous and ready to pitch global development. MCC15 has overwhelmingly increased my drive for global development initiatives.
