“MSCNE is a transformative experience. If you pay attention to the speakers and participate fully in the activities, you will leave the program as a better person. I’ve learned so much this week that I feel as though someone raised a lid on my head and poured in knowledge until it overflowed. In addition to being educational, MSCNE is also fun. You’ll meet some great people, visit some intriguing places, and make memories to last a lifetime. Be sure to explore Athens with some new friends in your spare time!”
