"It was a fantastic opportunity. The networking at the conference was great and made the experience a ton of fun. I brought back a lot of resources from the break out sessions and resource fairs. The whole process from applying to awarding to attending was smooth."
- Jill Vestrum, 2017 NACAC National Conference

"The conference had a variety of sessions, and I learned more about involvement opportunities in ACAC, transfer credits from high schools, how enrollment managers think, and many other hot topics in the industry. Most importantly, I met new people in the field and learned about the variety of career paths. Learning about other professional's career paths always helps me refine my future plans and consider other possibilities." 
- Elizabeth Strom, 2018 Midwest Conference

"I would 100 percent recommend a legacy grant to a colleague. The opportunity to be able to attend an event such as the NACAC conference, was such a valuable experience to better myself, and expand my horizons throughout the higher education industry."
- Kate Tamm, 2017 NACAC National Conference
