Accomplishment: For the first e-Social of the year, I issued a challenge to the undergraduate administrators to get as many freshmen and transfer students to attend as possible. In typical Barb fashion, she inundated her new ECE students with hysterical emails. As a result, 28.5% of them attended, far above all the other department's attendance average of 11.8%.
Benefit to the Hajim School: It is valuable for staff to connect with our new students to the Hajim School community as early as possible. This will hopefully aid in student retention by connecting these students with their peers, graduate students, faculty and staff.
