Below are some updates from the Office of Advising and Co-Curricular Programs:
Leopard Experience Survey – The “Leopard Experience” is a concept of the shared Lafayette student experience through established traditions, new ideas, and improved practices and policies. Last week the Steering Committee held student forums to develop a blueprint for a shared student experience and to discuss thoughts on policies and practices that will improve our students’ social and academic experience. We still want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts via this SURVEY. Answer the survey to the best of your availability. We’ll continue to collect survey responses throughout the next few weeks.
Juniors – we have a Leopard Experience opportunity just for you! Please join us on Thursday, December 8 at noon (Location TBD) to discuss your thoughts about the junior year experience. Lunch will be provided. To be added to the invitation, please reach out to Dean Cox (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dean Samble (email@example.com) by Wednesday, December 7th.
Academic Resource Hub – Get extra practice with course content and make it part of your routine to attend Supplemental Instruction, Mentored Study Group and Drop-In Sessions for the courses that have those support structures. Schedules are available through your faculty as well as TutorTrac. Sessions are for all students and it’s not too late to make them part of your weekly schedule.
