BSU Blogfest {community}

Thank you for joining me for Social Media Week 2011
at Bridgewater State University.
I have enjoyed reading others' posts from the Blogfest.

Today's prompt: community

[I might be most excited about today's topic]
Community is something that is important to me,
so I have thought about it quite a bit and come to realize
BSU has a unique and vibrant community.
I hope no one takes this for granted.
I have been a student and worked at three other institutions,
so I feel fairly confident in my assessment of
BSU students, faculty and staff's ability to make people feel welcome,
 and more importantly make connections.
Not only are folks friendly and helpful around campus,
but they are caring and genuine.
Students on Alternative Break Trip to Guatemala
From my first day on campus on a hot June day in 2008 to
going on an alternative break trip to Guatemala with students weeks ago,
I find the sense of community among BSU Bears to be contagious.
In my work in the Campus Center, we aim to create community
by being welcoming, offering excellent customer service
and providing many spaces (meeting rooms, ballroom, lounges)
for students, faculty and staff to use from 8am-11pm daily.
In addition to the sense of community we see in person,
I have to hive a nod to the online community & its recent growth.
Since 2009, the BSU Campus Center has worked to
 engage students via Twitter, Facebook and its blog.
The Campus Center
Community is important and I am excited to see how it
continues to grow in my time at BSU.
