Thoughts on MARL

I became more aware and Mindful in my everyday life. I am striving to be a better listener when communicating especially when it comes to a conversation that I am passionate about. MARL stretched me to new lengths in both my Personal and Professional life.

Ben Askegaard (Class VIII), Fargo/Moorhead

MARL is a unique opportunity to maximize a network of leadership skills with an eye on the importance of Agricultural and Rural economy’s in the future.  I have never been so positively surprised to learn more about communities, companies, and people who I already thought I knew. As well as make so many great connections.
