I stopped by to chat with one of the Career Services employees about how receptive students have been to Handshake so far. It was great to find out that the tee-shirts allotted to the first 1,000 students had been given away--and then some (1,200 total). It was also great to hear that the turn out was especially high during the Get a Clue event. Looks like Handshake got off to a great start with Student Pirate Nation!
Loved it. Not only was I offered a lot of useful information, but as one of the first 1,000 students to sign up, I received a free tee-shirt. I'll be wearing it tomorrow for the Get a Clue Event. Thank you, Career Service, for providing this opportunity for students of Pirate Nation!
It was great! I stopped by at the Handshake Launch Party table that was set up as part of the Get a Clue event. I was wearing the tee-shirt I'd been given during my visit the day before, and my effort to be a "walking billboard" for Launch was recognized. Thank you!
Loved it! I'm a non-traditional student back at ECU after being away for many years, and one of the promises I made to myself was that I'd make this college experience better than the one I had back then. So far, I've been able to do this, through going to a lot of events and joining organizations, many of which didn't exist during my undergrad days. I continue to be impressed with all ECU offers these days to help students make the most of their college experience. Go Pirate Nation!
This was an amazing opportunity to get to know about these dogs, their service to our country and the challenges they have to adjusting to a peacetime environment. It's truly remarkable that the returning soldiers with PTSD are effected similarly to the dogs. The adopters of these heros are incredible people.
