The Fall 2011 semester is upon us. Where did the summer go? It seems it was just a few weeks ago that we finished the spring semester.
The Fall 2011 semester is upon us. Where did the summer go? It seems it was just a few weeks ago that we finished the spring semester. Gone are the long days of summer. A new year with new possibilities awaits us.
While you were away, we shook things up. You already received an email from Eric Bennett announcing me as the Dean of Students and his promotion to VP for Student Development. Now meet the new members of the Student Development team and learn about shifting roles for the old-timers by clicking here.
Of particular interest to you are the expanded services of the Counseling Center, now located in the 330 space (in Dr. David Corbin’s old office); the soon to be launched King’s intramural program with sports like soccer, dodge ball and Ultimate Frisbee; our upgraded strategy to help you achieve your academic goals – the hiring of a Student Success Coordinator in Student Services; and the revamping of the Honor Council (see page 44 of the Student Handbook).
We’ve put all of these things—and more—in place to foster the best student experience in North America.
I suggest you keep up with the latest developments and opportunities at King’s via Twitter, the Career Services Facebook Page, the soon-to-be-released TKC-Weekly, and the Student Handbook (really). Also, you can expect to hear from me regularly via email on various subjects.
With a re-energized Student Development team and improved services, we are ready for the 2011-12 academic year. I look forward to serving you this year.
Enjoy your last weekend before the start of the semester.
