May 7, 2013

Recognize a faculty member at South University for Teacher Appreciation Week, and you could win a prize!

From May 6 to 10, 2013, log on to Connections and visit the Student Community department page to enter. In the forum labeled Teacher Appreciation Week 2013, upload your video or written response to the following question:

Albert Einstein once said, It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” 

Name an instructor at South University that has helped you discover your passion and explain what that has meant to you. Has it changed the way you think about your future or career path? Please be specific in your examples.

Connections Department Page

You may enter through the South University Connections site via the Campus Common. From there, select Departments (shown in the image on the right) and then Student Community.

Entries must be inserted into the Student Community department forum labeled Teacher Appreciation Week 2013.

One entry per person will be accepted. An entry consists of one short essay of at least 150 words but less than 500 words or a video essay no longer than three minutes. Video essays must be less than 100MB and be saved as the following file formats: mov, avi, mpg, mpeg, wmv, mp4, flv.
