A blog post from SOLES Ambassador and MA in Nonprofit Leadership and Management Desiree Del-Zio:
This September marks the start of my second year of graduate school at SOLES. As a Master’s student in the Nonprofit Leadership and Management Program I have learned so much, not only about my industry and my work, but about myself. I continue to be inspired and awe struck by the manner in which USD elevates their student body to truly look within, find new ways to understand the world around them and most importantly to open mindedly examine the decisions they make. I can say with confidence that I came into this program a completely different person than I am now. I find myself seeking answers rather than feeling as though I have to know them.
I am continuously intrigued by the many different methods one can employ to solve problems and am truly excited about what is around the corner in my studies of leadership and the nonprofit industry. But I am not going to deny – the new friends I have made, the study groups that occur over pot luck, the idea sharing that revolves around a glass of wine or an evening by the beach are also amazing highlights of studying at the University of San Diego.
