    Creating win-win relationships between schools and agencies is easy as long as you remember the golden rule for any relationship – communicate! As a new student programmer you must first realize that you are not the first person to be new nor are you alone in the experiences you are facing. Every year program boards across the country turn portions of their memberships over and advisors and agents need to relearn how each new student works and use it as learning process that each of you will work through together.

In addition, there is so much information for the employee to take in that it is often confusing for them to know where to start.

    An active shooter cannot be predicted to follow any pattern and the response to an active shooter is arguably one of the most dynamic situations anyone will ever face. How you respond will be dictated by the specific circumstances of the encounter, as well as your own level of self-awareness and confidence in your ability to react in a timely and appropriate manner. I hope the information I share here will be helpful to you in preparing for and reacting to an active shooter situation, as well as inform you about what to expect from responding law enforcement.

    The college drag show: for some universities, it’s been around for a few years; for others, it’s a new idea on the horizon. Regardless, it’s a phenomenon sweeping the student activities nation, increasing in popularity and frequency. This rise in prominence is due in large part to the increased presence of drag culture in popular media. Given the increasing presence of drag performance on colleges nationally, it’s important to reflect on how student activities staff and higher education as a whole can support students in bringing these events to campus.
