Barrett Leadership and Service Team (BLAST)

Mission Statement: 

Tradition Starts Here. 

General Information: 

The Barrett Leadership and Service Team (or BLAST as members affectionately call it) was founded in the fall 2006 semester. The team works to create and organize new events that will build a strong community among Barrett students, past and present, and lay the foundation for longstanding traditions unique to the Honors College. BLAST focuses on three pillars of engagement: leadership development, social service, and the support of major honors college events including Family Weekend, Homecoming, the Centennial Lecture, the Rhodes Lecture, the Celebrating Honors Thesis Symposium, and Convocation.
