South University Online Programs Invites Students to Participate in “Summer Escape”

by South University
August 18, 2011

From Wednesday, August 10 through Sunday, August 14, South University Online Programs invited students to participate in “Summer Escape” in Connections, South University’s exclusive social network. Each day, students were presented with a task, with a chance to win gift cards if their response to the task was chosen.

The five tasks were as follows:

  • Task One: Post a photo of your favorite relaxation destination with a brief description.
  • Task Two: Look through Connections to find an event you attended or one that you would have liked to attend and write why you chose it. Alternatively, students could come up with their own idea for a future event.
  • Task Three: List your summer reading recommendations.
  • Task Four: Find an article related to something that you find particularly interesting (related to your major), and post the article in Connections.
  • Task Five: What are you most proud of this summer? Did you pass a class? Did you accomplish something that you’ve been waiting to do?

The winners of “Summer Escape” were announced shortly after the contest’s end. If you’re a South University Online Programs student who missed out on this contest, be sure to keep an eye on Connections in the Campus Common for the latest fun activities!
