Student Advisory Board Meeting Topics

Please feel free to send feedback to Marcie Cohen regarding the following topics discussed at this week's Student Advisory Board Meetings:

  1. Workshop ideas for a Career/Professional Development Day event (i.e. resume-writing, interview skills, Intro to LinkedIn)
  2. Ideas for other campus events (academic/professional or social)
  3. Thoughts about establishing a peer mentoring program (i.e. Senior-level students paired with new students). How do we match mentor with mentee? Responsibilities?
  4. Alumni Programming - What types of programs/events would you be interested in as WCU in Philadelphia alumni? What is the best method of obtaining post-graduation information?
  5. What is working well on our campus? What needs improvement?

Thank you!
