Sea Island Scholars:

Sea Island Scholars is a program sponsored by the Terry College of Business Women’s Initiative designed to offer an annual, experiential learning opportunity with notable Terry alumnae and supporters. This experience offers an inside look at the business operations of an internationally recognized resort, and the chance for students to further develop personal and professional goals.

The activities of the Sea Island Scholars program are designed to:

  • Inform students about the history and business operations of a highly successful hotel and resort.
  • Engage students intellectually through lectures and discussions with alumni and guest speakers.
  • Promote professional development and personal goals, plans and mentorship.
  • Encourage team building through a variety of outdoor activities (e.g. nature walks, yoga, etc.).

The Terry Women’s Initiative gives me the assurance I need to go above and beyond expectations. I now have a clear understanding that my gender or age are not barriers to success. Achieving my goals takes perseverance, motivation and the ability to build relationships with people who are willing to guide me along the way.

The Terry Women’s Initiative is a platform for me to realize my potential; it has exposed me to brilliant women who have not only given me tremendous support and wisdom, but who have also inspired me to reach out to other women and help them succeed in whatever way I can.

The Terry Women’s Conference, in particular, was very inspirational as well as informative. I interacted with incredibly successful women who work in the field I am interested in, and I had the opportunity to ask for their honest career advice. I am so grateful that I was able to experience the Conference as a student.
