Last week the community team attended the CUNY CUE Conference, and we were happy to do so. Our presentation, Engaging a College Community Through Open Digital Technologies: City Tech’s OpenLab, discussed our ongoing efforts to increase students’ sense of community at City Tech. As we’ve said before, it’s not always easy to connect on a largely-commuter campus such as ours, and it’s our belief that the OL can play a central part in that process. In fact, with student membership increasing every day, we’d like to think we already are!
We’d also especially like to note the role of student community team member Brianna Vasquez. At a CUNY event largely attended by faculty and administrators, when we asked Brianna to be part of our presentation, she did not balk–in fact she jumped at the chance. And when her two fellow teammates fell ill and could not present with her, she happily spoke on the student team’s behalf to an audience of faculty from across CUNY. Brianna remained her charming self, speaking knowledgeably and well about her role on the team, and our presentation wouldn’t have been the same without her.
And on top of that, she made the cake in the picture above! Thanks Brianna!
This may be our last post of the year, so happy summer to all!
