Sharon Jenson, of the Career Development Center, has received Student Affairs Employee of the Month for Febuary. Sharon is the historical voice of the Career Development Center and is a legacy here on campus. As such, she has insured that serving the needs of students has been our primary goal and mission in spite of significant staff turnover in the past several years. Sharon will make time to meet with any student inquiring about internships, student employment or any career matter, and link him or her with all resources available. Sharon Jensen is the kind of person that always puts others before herself. She has dedicated so much of her time to helping students and it does not go unnoticed. She is the definition of a servant leader and she has never failed at making those around her laugh just when they needed it most. Individuals like her are the ones that others should aspire to work with and be as a young, growing professional.
During November, residents of each hall on campus came together as a community to do service projects. Residents in Hoey, East, and Appalachian Panhellenic Halls spent time creating greeting cards for service people stationed overseas and hospitalized children. These greetings will go across the country and around the world spreading joy and positivity from our students. Residents in Gardner, Coltrane, and Bowie wrote cards to deliver to campus partners to show their appreciation for all they do to make Appalachian State an outstanding place to be a student.Read more
With over 11,000 Appalachian State University students living off-campus, and that number increasing each year, Off-Campus Student Services has continued to enhance and expand its programs for off-campus students. Each academic year, we kick off the fall semester with “House Calls,” our outreach to off-campus students. This year, through the efforts of more than 60 faculty and staff volunteers, we knocked on over 2,000 student apartment doors and reached well over 5,000 off-campus students with safety information related to critical issues that impact college students.Read more
