Current student feedback

What are current students saying about Dean's Scholars?
  • Being in Dean's Scholars was tremendous to my growth during my years in CBS.

  • Thank you CBS for making me a Dean’s Scholar, showing me the true connections that leaders make with people, and the great impact we can have even on those people. This is an experience that I will remember as the beginning of a new me, and the start to a leader that doesn’t lead in front of people, but shows them what they can do to lead themselves to promote mutual understanding of one another.

  • The Dean's Scholars program was one of the best college experiences I have had.

  • Although science is fun to learn, I believe leadership is one of those necessary abilities for us to be successful in the future and I really enjoy what we cover in this program.

  • I learned a lot from the Dean's Scholars program by not only gaining an appreciation for Self Awareness, Citizenship, and Creating Change mean, but the fact that I've gained so much confidence in who I am as person, in how I can apply my strengths, and in my potential to make lasting change in this world.

  • Belonging to the Dean’s Scholars program has meant more to me than anything else here at the University of Minnesota. I sincerely feel a connection to this university through this program, in a way that not many others get the chance to experience.

  • I really enjoyed the chance to meet other CBS students who share similar interests and passions as I do. Being in such a great group of strong leaders is both inspiring and encouraging. This experience has not only pushed me to be the best I can be, but countless friendships have been formed.
