  • Attending President's Retreat was the single best thing that I could have done for my chapter. We are at a make or break point and I feel that attending this Retreat gave me the tools necessary to elevate my chapter to the next level. I cannot wait to get back to campus and share everything that I have learned with my members.

  • The pse presidents retreat is an excellent opportunity for students to join together and share ideas as well as work collaboratively to solve problems. It provided me with extensive information that will help my chapters executive board catapult our members into a successful career as an elite professional.

  • President's Retreat completely opened my eyes and took anxieties off my shoulders for the upcoming semester. I came out of the weekend with a complete new outlook on Pi Sigma Epsilon as a national organization and with so many new ideas to implement in my chapter. I am a much stronger leader and person because of what I learned at this conference and it was one of the best experiences of my collegiate career.

  • It's a great way to understand the value of PSE and to received the motivation it takes to have such a high position. I would recommend it for any future presidents that wish to leave a legacy for their chapter.
