 The 2013 Student Leadership Consultant application will be available in the spring, beginning on January 29, 2013.  Please visit the Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs website in the future for updates.  Look out for our 1990's themed advertisements early next semester!

 

 Student Leadership Consultants work in conjunction with the Office for Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs to assist with the development, coordination, and implementation of programs and services offered. They serve as ambassadors to the campus community and should represent the vision and values of the Office. Through continuous education and training, Student Leadership Consultants have the opportunity to expand their skills in the areas of customer service, public speaking, marketing, and program development.

 

1990's Wiki Trivia:

“Wishbone is a television show that aired from 1995 to 1998 and reruns from 1998 to 2001 in the United States featuring a Jack Russell Terrier of the same name. The main character, the talking dog Wishbone, lives with his owner Joe Talbot in the fictional modern town of Oakdale, Texas. As he tends to daydream about being the lead character of stories from classic literature, drawing parallels between the stories and events in the lives of Joe and his friends, he was known as "the little dog with a big imagination". The show follows his daydreams, as Wishbone acts out a famous story from literature or folklore. Only the viewers and the characters in his daydreams can hear Wishbone speak (and furthermore, the characters from his daydreams see Wishbone as whatever famous character he is currently portraying and not as a dog).

This show garnered particular praise for refusing to bowdlerise many of the sadder or more unpleasant aspects of the source works, which usually enjoyed a fairly faithful retelling in the fantasy sequences.

It also inspired several book series. Altogether, there are more than fifty books featuring Wishbone, which were published even after the TV series ended production, up to 1998. It continues to air reruns by some PBS affiliates
