The National Campus Leadership Team wants to hear what you and your campus have been up to this semester! Choose what you'd like to share and add as much detail as you're willing (although we always want more!). We're asking you to share for a number of reasons. First, we want to hear the exciting things you're doing, so that we can share them with other schools and make the campus fight against cancer even stronger. Secondly, this information is going to give us the opportunity to recognize, congratulate, and thank campuses for the incredible work they're doing through our Campus Leadership Team Awards Program! Check out who won fall semester awards here.
