Lessons from Social Impact Days

By Smit Naik

Dreamers, innovators and visionaries assemble!”

That was the call I imagined myself and other first-year students hearing last month at the start of Kellogg’s Social Impact Days.

OK, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little. But honestly, not by much. Over the course of three glorious days, 100 of my closest friends and I embarked on our first Kellogg-guided journey. And what a journey it was.

To be honest, when I first signed up for Social Impact Days, a pre-term program run by the Kellogg Public-Private Interface (KPPI) Initiative, I had no idea what to expect. What kind of people would I meet? What do they really expect out of us this early in the journey? Am I even going to have any friends there? Fortunately, all of these worries were quelled on the first night when I met the other students, many of who had the same initial questions I did.
