John Swallow is president of Carthage College.
My daughter, a sophomore at a small liberal arts college, took a leave of absence to spend 14 months working with a nongovernmental organization in Guatemala. As her dad, I’m proud this experience helped her grow. As a president, I wonder how we might better develop first-year experiences that bring such meaning to a student’s life.
