Student Testimonials

Ivan said "Wood Ducks in the wild is a fantastic student life program that gave me the opportunity to learn leadership activities. I think it is a great program because thanks to all these  activities, I have achieved many goals in my life and I have met great people that have changed my life as well. I have always had great experiences but most importantly thanks to this program I have the opportunity to continue with my education at Century."

Jenna said "Wood Ducks in the Wild is such an amazing program! I knew nothing about camping or the outdoors when I signed up for the trip to Itasca State Park last summer. After one night sleeping under the stars, I was hooked! Now, I can’t wait to get outside and explore as often as I can. Wood Ducks in the Wild gave me the valuable hands-on experience I needed to get out and plan my own adventures. I’ve had such a great time learning and I’ve made some awesome friends too!”

Faculty Testimonials

Anna said "We have partnered with the team from Ducks Leadership for the past four semesters to encourage team building in our nursing clinical groups.  Not only has it been tons of fun but students get to know each other and their instructors right at the start of the semester.  It's really helped teams get along and work well together at clinical."
