	Leadership in government, business, and educational entities proclaim Dr. Jay Strack to be a dynamic communicator and author. Jay is the author of several highly acclaimed books, including: The Three Success Secrets of Shamgar. As President and Founder of Student Leadership University, the premiere global leadership training for students, he has successfully merged the classroom with behind the scenes “edu-tainment” experiences in Orlando, San Diego, San Antonio, Washington D.C., England, Israel, Jordan, Palestine, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, China and Africa, thus providing a customized environment for learning. More than 30 years of volunteerism as a speaker in high schools and universities has given him a unique understanding and perspective to inspire students. Strack speaks to students in the same way he presents to major corporations and professional sports team, believing if we give them the right tools, students can soar into future-tense thinking and influence as leaders. Having prevailed over drug addiction and an abusive childhood, Jay believes, “If I can overcome the past and believe in the future, anyone can. Your dreams determine your destiny.”

	Leadership in government, business, and educational entities proclaim Dr. Jay Strack to be a dynamic communicator and author. Jay is the author of several highly acclaimed books, including: The Three Success Secrets of Shamgar. As President and Founder of Student Leadership University, the premiere global leadership training for students, he has successfully merged the classroom with behind the scenes “edu-tainment” experiences in Orlando, San Diego, San Antonio, Washington D.C., England, Israel, Jordan, Palestine, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, China and Africa, thus providing a customized environment for learning. More than 30 years of volunteerism as a speaker in high schools and universities has given him a unique understanding and perspective to inspire students. Strack speaks to students in the same way he presents to major corporations and professional sports team, believing if we give them the right tools, students can soar into future-tense thinking and influence as leaders. Having prevailed over drug addiction and an abusive childhood, Jay believes, “If I can overcome the past and believe in the future, anyone can. Your dreams determine your destiny.”

	Leadership in government, business, and educational entities proclaim Dr. Jay Strack to be a dynamic communicator and author. Jay is the author of several highly acclaimed books, including: The Three Success Secrets of Shamgar. As President and Founder of Student Leadership University, the premiere global leadership training for students, he has successfully merged the classroom with behind the scenes “edu-tainment” experiences in Orlando, San Diego, San Antonio, Washington D.C., England, Israel, Jordan, Palestine, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, China and Africa, thus providing a customized environment for learning. More than 30 years of volunteerism as a speaker in high schools and universities has given him a unique understanding and perspective to inspire students. Strack speaks to students in the same way he presents to major corporations and professional sports team, believing if we give them the right tools, students can soar into future-tense thinking and influence as leaders. Having prevailed over drug addiction and an abusive childhood, Jay believes, “If I can overcome the past and believe in the future, anyone can. Your dreams determine your destiny.”

FAQs

What are the requirements to attend SLU 201?

All attendees under the age of 18 must have completed the SLU 101 program before attending SLU 201.  We also recommend spreading the experiences out and not completing them in the same summer.

How old do I need to be to attend SLU 201?

You must be 16 years old to attend without an adult.

What about travel protection for SLU 201?

We strongly recommend that you purchase trip protection as SLU prepays all hotels, meals, transportation, etc., 30 to 120 days before the conference. Therefore, we cannot pass a refund on to you other than as noted on the registration page. Click here for more information on travel protection. Travel protection must be purchased through the portal before the final payment deadline for the trip or before you make the final payment for the trip (whichever date comes first); you cannot add it after this date.

What is the cancellation policy for SLU 201?

Cancellation Policy:

  • 45 days or more before departure: Deposit will be lost
  • 30-44 days before departure: 50% of the total cost of the program will be forfeited.
  • Less than 30 days before departure: 100% of the total cost of the program will be forfeited.

Transfer Policy:

  • 15 days or more before departure: Registration fees may be transferred to a new registration for the current year and the same program and not incur a transfer fee.
  • 14 days and under before departure: All transfers to a new registration for the same program will incur a $10 transfer fee.

To cancel or transfer a registration, please email registration@studentleadership.net.

How are students roomed together at SLU 201?

As part of the registration process, you will submit a rooming list no later than 45 days before the conference. If you are attending by yourself, SLU will do our best to place you in a room with other SLU students of the same gender and similar age. Rooms may not be co-ed unless members of the same family. One individual student under 18 cannot be in a room by themselves.  SLU will not room a student with an adult over 18 if they are not from the same group. Tuition rates are based on four people sharing a room. If you are unable to fill a room completely and SLU is unable to do so, additional charges will apply ($237 for each empty spot). You may be billed after the final payment date for room accommodations that are not quad occupancy, as necessary. Rollaway beds are not available. Rooms will be available at 4:00 pm. .

How do I get from the airport to the hotel at SLU 201?

Students will not be met at the airport. You must make transportation arrangements to and from the hotel. We recommed jarriving at the hotel by 4:00 pm so you can check-in with us and get settled before SLU 201 kicks off.

  • Metro: The hotel has lobby access to the Crystal City Metro stop.
  • Taxi/Cab/Uber: The estimated fare for a taxi from Reagan National is approx. $10.
  • Hotel Shuttle: The hotel has a complimentary 12 passenger shuttle that runs every 20 minutes from 5:00 AM to 11:00 PM. The shuttle picks up at ground transportation. Look for the Crystal City Gateway Marriott shuttle. Because we have over 900 people coming in for SLU 201 (most of which are flying), the hotel cannot guarantee transportation for all attendees in a timely manner so SLU recommends participants consider one of the first two options.
