Attention Students: Have You Checked out Connections Lately?

by South University
April 11, 2011

For the traditional student, college is usually about much more than heading to class and completing assignments. There’s also the social aspect: the clubs and organizations one participates in throughout their matriculation.

Of course, this phenomenon is not specific to campus-based schools - South University offers its students the opportunity to interact with their peers and faculty outside the online classroom with Connections, South University’s exclusive social network.

Connections is a great place for students to interact with faculty and each other. It includes three specific areas for interaction:

  • A department area where faculty and students from specific programs can interact and read about the latest news and events pertinent to them.
  • An Organizations area that includes student chapters of professional organizations, as well as groups organized by the Student Affairs department at South University.
  • A lounge area where users can create their own groups based on anything from their location to specific interests they may have outside of school.

For students who may not have a chance to check out Connections on a regular basis, Student Affairs also publishes a quarterly newsletter called Connections Corner, which highlights some of the most recent events and organizations discussed in Connections. The newsletter is e-mailed to students and is also posted on the Campus Common.
