Hi my name is Geo Derice. I was that disengaged student who would never be found on campus outside class hours. I walked away from college with 2 friends in 4 years and attended only 1 club meeting, which happened only because they were offering free food that one meeting. I describe my college experience as one of pure hate, to the degree that when I drive pass my alma mater I cringe. How could one’s college experience go so wrong? Was it the college? Was it I, the student?
After I graduated college with a degree (and not an education) I was working many job I could, including being a personal trainer. That job changed my life because I realized her I was, the college graduation working a job along side high school graduate coworkers. I was mad. I was mad at college for not being what I needed it to be. I wasn’t passionate about fitness, I was just wanted job. How come college didn’t set me up to succeed? And I felt inadequate to do basic things like communicate with those I did not know, BECAUSE I NEVER learned networking skills while attending college or how to work on big projects which I now know would have been a part of the experience in participating within student organizations/clubs.
I spent so much time mad at my college for not helping me succeed until I met a mentor that made me look in the mirror and realize it wasn’t that the resources weren’t on campus, it was that I didn’t maximize my experience to utilize the resources at hand.
I WAS lucky enough to meet a mentor to who taught me the skills and tools I needed to become successful in the real world. However, I could have avoided years of pain and suffering if I would have just done college the right way. But I wasn’t interested in college the way it was presented to me. In fact, I discovered my story wasn’t unique. Many current students are disengaged and student apathy is on a scary rise. I’ve been fortunate enough to see first hand exactly why students are not engaged and how to create an experience that is engaging. Based on research and a real life tested approach, the programming we offer to student leaders and emerging leaders will impact the culture of your campus to make sure your students graduate with the real world skills they need to create a college experience they really want.
I’M committed to speak on every college campus to ensure no student walks away with anything less than the full college experience, after all it’s the dress rehearsal of the life you’ll spend the rest of your years living.
There’s no dress rehearsal for life like going to college. College is great preparation for life. Unfortunately many students enter college unprepared for the culture shock they are about to receive. This leaves them feeling inadequate and thinking that college is not for them, leading to many dropping out after their first year of school.
This presentation shows students that not only they belong in college, but how to make the most of the college experience. Students will walk away more engaged in school activities, achieving better grades in school, and also walk away singing praises about the college they attend.
The mindset, habits and practices they will walk away from this presentation will show them how to do college right, which will show them how to do life right.

What is the difference between a student leader that others love versus a student leader that others hate? Today everyone wants to be a leader but unfortunately not everyone understands the key to becoming the kind of leader that others willingly follow.
Many people follow leaders because they HAVE to follow them, but that creates an environment or culture of obligation , which leads to many bitter and unhappy people.
However when you lead in a way where followers WANT to be led you will have a culture of excitement, joy and see a MAJOR increase in productivity.
