When students make the transition from high school to college, it’s usually an exciting time. Finally, the student gets to choose what he or she wants to learn, rather than being forced to learn the general education subjects. Having control over something that has been planned since Kindergarten is refreshing for young college freshmen, and can inspire them to crave education at new heights. That’s why when the new English majors take their first college math class, they are scratching their heads saying, “wait a minute…..when will I use this stuff?”
In the business world, technology is a good thing to have. It makes connecting with others easier and can make your business seem fresh and current. However, a business that relies solely on technology and cuts out the personal aspect is frowned upon in the eyes of customers.
Lately, it seems that businesses and corporations are hiring recent college graduates to help conduct their social media or technology resources. While this creates great job opportunities for the students, there are three lessons new employees should keep in mind before starting.
When classes are over for the summer, most students look forward to vacations, daytime TV, and sleeping in. Others cram in a few summer classes, work part-time jobs or take on summer internships.
Lately, I have been thinking about what student organizations need to focus on in order to be successful. While generating more attendance and hosting great discussions, it is essential that each chapter have a strong succession plan in place.
If you think about the most successful student organizations, it’s obvious they have dedicated leaders and strong student support. One trait that isn’t obvious is they have a solid succession plan to continue their student organization’s motto and purpose. So what’s the trick to create this continuing success? How can your chapter continue to grow rather than disappear?
