Periclean Impact:  Project Pericles and being a Periclean Scholar has impacted the way I view the world and the effect small acts can have on it. It showed me how linked we all are to everything and how impossible it is to remain indifferent once you open your eyes. I know that I will take all I have learned about creating something from nothing, to working with a group, to fully committing to a cause greater than myself, and to applying that and so much more to everything I do in the future. I want to be someone that Pericles himself would be proud of, an informed, engaged and productive citizen of the world.

Periclean Impact: I could not have imagined a better organization to be a part of during my undergrad college experience! My outlook on life was broadened greatly through Periclean Scholars, changing who I am and my goals. Working together with my classmates, being a scholar allowed me to understand the endless possibilities we must work towards and the unbelievable amount of impact that we can have on others. We are all here to serve and now we understand that it can be done through everything we do as long as we continue to be aware and strive to be a part. Being a Periclean Scholar helped to open my eyes to the lifestyle I want as well as giving me the opportunities and the connections I need to live it. I have just returned from doing volunteer work in Honduras over the summer (2007) and am planning my next trip back. We understand sustainability and are here to do our best to make it work!

Periclean Impact: The Periclean Scholars program and specifically our project in Honduras has helped me see the world around me in a whole new light. I work hard now so I can return and make a sustainable impact on the children in Honduras. The project has changed my outlook on life and on the potential of myself and others.

Periclean Impact:  The Periclean Scholars Program instilled in me a commitment to service and global social responsibility.  As I enter the "real world," I hope to keep this commitment alive in my daily life and through the organizations with which I associate.  Periclean Scholars helped me realize the blessings I have been given and helped me begin to understand atrocities around the world.  I am proud to be a member of this incredible organization for life.
