The Student Organizations Advisors Blog is a resource for all College of Charleston Advisors who may be looking for additional information to help guide their practice. Throughout the year, myself, members within the Division of Student Affairs, and even guest bloggers from institutions across the state and country, will be contributing to the blog. It is my goal to provide relevant, timely information that will support every advisor’s work with their student group(s).
Some of our seasoned advisors might remember the Student Organization Advisors Newsletter, well this blog will be replacing that newsletter. No longer will information be sent out once a month in a static format. With the development of the Advisors blog, information will be made available on a regular basis, and at any time any member of our advisor network can post a comment, and continue the conversation. No matter when information gets posted, it will be accessible whenever someone may need it. An email will go out, about once a month, over the advisors listserv informing everyone that new blogs are available to read, but I would encourage you all to subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed, so you will be able to follow the blog as new posts are added.
As always, I welcome and encourage feedback throughout this process, and see the blog as a platform for you all to communicate with each other as much as I see it as a platform for my office to share student organization information with advisors. The availability of technology allows us to share information and learn from each other in far more interactive ways than ever before, and I feel it is my responsibility to utilize these new technologies to communicate with you all. Lets begin this journey together as we continue to better our students’ experiences at the College of Charleston.
