Participant Testimonials

"I can't thank you enough for this weekend! It was inspiring, engaging, and terrifying at times, and I loved every minute! I can tell already that I've made lifelong friends and I learned more than I could imagine about things I never knew about. I owe you a great deal, and I hope I get to see you all again!"

"For a first time conference, you attracted some fascinating speakers and put on a very interesting conference, with a diverse range of activities to partake in. Furthermore I was overwhelmed by the amount of funding you obviously managed to pool together!"

"The Envision Conference was one of my most amazing college experiences. I enjoyed every moment of it and felt like it was a truly enriching weekend. There are too few opportunities to discuss such big questions when caught up with day-to-day tasks and assignments, but this weekend was an opportunity to break free of that for a while and indulge in these fascinating topics with extremely intelligent and ambitious individuals that challenged me to think about the future of society in new ways.
