Ugghhh! Okay, I hate campus-wide emails. They send you a billion of them and most of them don’t pertain to anything relevant. Announcing the loss of the Presidents cat Mr. Whiskers. Yeah, thanks! But there are useful things that come across that you need to pay attention to.
Guest speaker are the first to come to mind. I have met New York Times best-selling author by seeing email announcements and attending…oh yeah, you have to go up and introduce yourself too.
Anyway, watch out for what is coming up. During scholarship season there may be an award that hasn’t or isn’t going to be claimed. If you pay attention you could make out. Opportunities abound, you just have to decide, is the juice worth the squeeze?
