“Thanks to the Humanics Program, I entered the conference fully prepared to learn, to grow, and to network. I got so much out of the experience that I am still trying to process and apply it all. This conference was certainly one of the highlights of my college career and I am so glad I was able to spend it with my Humanics family.”
