Testimonials

I was nervous going into my first year at BYU, and thought I'd have a hard time getting to know people. Right from the get-go, I was set up with an amazing team and fantastic mentors. All throughout the year, I had people I knew and could relate to and share experiences with. We were at the same point in our lives, and in our education.

Foundations of Leadership provided me with the absolute best experience before beginning my first semester at Brigham Young University. In three days you develop lasting relationships with other incoming freshman as well as current BYU students (peer mentors), learn the ins and outs of BYU, and learn how to be an effective leader all at the same time! I was so much more prepared for my first semester at BYU because of FOL.
