In the spirit of, “Think Student – Then Decide,” twenty-eight employees volunteered to serve as campus guides for this year’s incoming students.
Not surprisingly, many students successfully managed to maneuver to the right class without glancing upward from their glowing 3.5-inch displays. With this generation in mind the Green River College Technology Club has released its very first mobile app, appropriately titled GatorMapp, which provides location-based directions to all buildings on campus.
For others, though, the human touch was necessary to help find their way during this first week of classes, and I am confident that all volunteers were proud to be there for them. As someone who envies the staff that deal with students directly on a daily basis, it was a rewarding opportunity for me to reconnect and to remind myself what our institution stands for.
Special thanks to Zach Lambert for organizing and supporting this event.
