In addition to having a presence on campus, we will host a scholarship sweepstakes to drive up interest among students. Our overall campaign will have an active, adventurous theme, depicting experiences of common, everyday people. Lastly, we will use social media to target our younger
Gilman international scholarship is through social media. I believe social media has interchanged the way society interacts and the way study abroad students, interact with students before, during, and after their time abroad. Social media is a good way to connect students who want to go abroad with students who are overseas. Google hangouts or skype would be a great way to interact with freshman and be able to explain what it is like to be abroad and share my experience. Another way to promote is on facebook,instagram,twitter by posting pictures and videos on my experience and thanking the Benjamin A. Gilman international scholarship on the wonderful
College gives students a chance to meet different people from all over the world. Some relationships made during college can help students find work after college graduation (www.blog.prepscholar.com).

College teaches social skills by talking to classmates or professors and by learning these skills students say that it helped and was useful in professional life when having to talk to new clients or people. Vivek Wadhwa, MBA, technology entrepreneur, and scholar says “by partying, they learn social skills; they learn how to interact with each other”. (procon.com). Going to
Hossler and Bontrager (2015) state that the sociological approach focuses on the early stages of one's college journey and "emphasizes the influences of social and cultural capital" (p. 51). Thus, this theory highlights one's social context, such as their social class, community, and high school, as well as parental involvement and expectations. Throughout my first essay, my environment was a strong predisposition that contributed toward my expectation of attending college. Due to my parents' middle-class status, their cultural and social capital garnered them certain knowledge sets. My mother knew how to research for the best school districts and suburbs using the internet, as well as employ her social network of coworkers, college friends,
The whole reason for college is to help people learn. Knowledge is power, and who doesn’t want power? College lets people learn new amazing things they did not have the opportunity to learn in high school.

Some these negative outcomes include anxiety, loneliness, procrastination, and unproductivity. My Public Service Announcement (PSA) should acquaint college students with these negative outcomes and persuade them to take action.

Instead of completely avoiding mobile devices, college students should reduce the amount of time spent on their mobile devices by checking social media fewer times throughout the day and by engaging in face to face communication rather than through mobile devices.
Connolly and Martinez-Alemán do a fantastic job at discussing reasons why social networking impacts student negatively and positively. However, I feel that they gloss over how social networking can help students form their identities in new and exciting ways. The ability to use and collaborate via social media and other digital communication tools is a competency laid down by ACPA and NASPA, making it part of our jobs as student affairs professionals to not only be able to use social media but how it impacts our students. Only time will tell if social media will have positive or negative effects long-term effects on learning and development. The technology is only getting more advanced and social media does not seem to be going
The aim is to develop departmental strategies to make sure that students are taught “in a more uniform way across the system. It’s not going to be identical because instructors use different methods - different styles of teaching - but we’ll be shooting for the same goals.” After spring break, HCC will start having a new face with a revamp of its communications and customer service. Apps will be rolled out to help make make a student services more seamless for students and “far more accessible to students through mobile phones” including transferring from high school to college, changing majors, and registering for classes. Expect to see such apps in about a year from now. “I’ve had a lot of complaints on the website,” admitted the chancellor, “I’m pretty tech savvy, and it’s hard for me to navigate.” HCC is seeking proposals from qualified firms to redesign the current HCC website.
