The Reason You’re Here

“The Reason You’re Here!” (aka “The Reason You’re Home Watching What You Should Be Seeing Live Here!”) This virtual orientation event will deliver a core message: College is an opportunity to develop your skills and interests into a dream career. The more value you add to others, the more your skills will be in demand. The most successful profession is the one that adds purpose to your life and value to the lives of others.

The event will be a multimedia presentation built around Michael’s proven tongue-in-cheek campus comedy, timely advice for newly minted college students, and the nationally recognized leadership training of John Maxwell. Michael is a certified leadership teacher and speaker with the John Maxwell Team. The goal of this event is to help young people transition from high school graduation, the official finish line of childhood, to new student orientation, the starting line for adult life and a lifelong career journey. #DoYourThing!

Michael Dean Ester

“Last night was awesome! No matter how many times we have Michael [Dean Ester] on campus – he still makes me laugh!!! You can tell he works hard at creating new material and his message is always very powerful for the incoming students.
