CI's Student Gift: A Free GPS

This year at CI incoming freshman will leave campus at the end of day three with a brand new GPS system. Before you become emotional and start to complain about the money GW spends on CI... keep reading.

Student and Academic Support Services led by Brian Hamluk have created a GW Guide to Personal Success (GPS) program where each incoming freshman will be paired with their own staff GPS advisor in a major university office. GW employees from the Admissions staff to UPD officers will each receive four to five new colonials that they will guide through their time at GW. Even four lucky students will receive Chernak as their very own GPS.

As a GW student, the one complaint I hear the most is how bureaucratic the university has become and how difficult it is to get an answer. With GPS, I can only hope that students will feel more connected to the "higher powers" and become enabled to get answers and assistance efficiently. Who better than a UPD officer, a SASS employee, or Robert Chernak to help you get your financial aid package reevaluated or to give you advice after you get written up.

With all the programs I have seen at this university I think GPS will be one of the most beneficial and meaningful to students if it really does work as planned. Thank you GW for realizing the needs of students and making an effort to rectify a long term problem.

So, GW students, will you use your GPS??

Anything that makes freshmen feel more a part of this school is a good call.

I think this will go the way of the adopt-an-officer program. Good idea in theory but not so great in practice.

That sounds like a good program if it works out. From experience at Georgetown, though, I know things like that can sometimes be awkward.

What was adopt-an-officer? I hope it involved hanging out with an MPD cop, taking him to play basketball or out to the movies, sort of a Big Brother-Big Sister thing.

yeah, the GPS thing is great. the explanation behind the GPS idea was great. but the fact that they called up all of the students from about 7 rural states (which ended up being about 11 students) and asked them a trivia question, giving them and only them the oppurtunity to win the GPS when many students in the audience knew the answer to the trivia question, was really annoying. like come on. where is the love for people who live in cities with more than 3 stoplights?

can someone who was there explain what that last comment was describing?

the last comment was describing CI's kickoff celebration and how Dr. Chernak gives out a GPS navigation system to a student

wrong GPS

I usually do not drop a leave a response, but I browsed
a few of the responses on "CI's Student Gift: A Free GPS".
I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it just me or do some of the remarks come across like they are left by brain
dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to follow you.

Would you make a list of all of your shared pages
like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

I was curious if you ever considered changing
the page layout of your blog? Its very well written;
I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in
the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
