LegCon Throwback

“When you go through LegCon, there are a lot of incredible leaders from across the country who all care about access to higher education. There are similar values around the student experience and expanding opportunities for those who are most disenfranchised and underrepresented in our higher education system. A big commitment for USSA is that those who are most directly affected by the issues, are the people who are speaking and leading on those issues.” — Jennifer Pae, Former United States Student Association President, recalling a 2007 LegCon.

Student leaders from every corner of the U.S. have descended upon Washington D.C. this weekend to connect with their lawmakers — it’s the U.S. Student Association (USSA) LegCon 2015.
