Each year, the Division of Student Affairs assists the Binghamton University Foundation in selecting students to receive several awards. Any member of the University community may nominate a student for these awards. It is important to remember that graduating seniors include those who completed their studies in August or December 2013, as well as those graduating in May 2014.
For nomination instructions, visit http://studentaffairs.binghamton.edu. All nominations and supporting statements must be time stamped by FEBRUARY 28, 2014.
Applications are now being accepted for undergraduate peer mentors (ELP Mentors) to work with new students through the 2014 Binghamton University Emerging Leaders Program (ELP). The ELP is fall semester experience, available to first-semester freshmen and transfer students who are interested in learning about and practicing leadership, becoming connected to the university and developing important skills for success in college and life. See the ELP website (www.binghamton.edu/emerging-leaders) for more information about the program.
Through the ELP, peer mentors have the opportunity to have a direct, positive impact on the lives of students new to the Binghamton University community. ELP Mentors serve as role models and primary contacts for new students making their way through their first semester. ELP provides an opportunity for students to put leadership into action, as it focuses on learning about and practicing distinct characteristics of leadership through a theme-based knowledge community and service learning project. ELP Mentors practice communication in a variety of settings, utilize facilitation and problem-solving skills, obtain increased knowledge of campus and how to maximize use of resources, build self-awareness and understanding of personal strengths and leadership skills, network with campus and community leaders and more.
ELP Mentors will be enrolled in a 2-credit hour practicum, which includes a weekly 1.5 hour seminar class that meets on Fridays from 3:30-5:00pm through the fall semester. The expected time commitment for the ELP Mentor position is approximately 6 hours per week.
ELP Mentor applications are available online through the ELP website (www.binghamton.edu/emerging-leaders); click on the ELP Mentors tab on the left toolbar.
Please contact the ELP program director, Debora Clinton Callaghan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or coordinator, Tyler Lenga (email@example.com) with any questions. The application deadline is 11:59pm on Monday, February 24th
In 2013, Rockbot was named the best music tech company at the famous South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX and now, in 2014, Rockbot comes to Binghamton University.
Through the free Rockbot app for iOS or Android customers, students, faculty and staff can now use their smartphones to select the music playing in the new University Union Marketplace.
Anyone hanging out can use Rockbot’s mobile jukebox app to pick songs, vote on upcoming music, interact with other customers, share on social media, and review special announcements. When students use the app, their song selections and votes show up on Rockbot TV displays on certain tvs in the Marketplace.
Even JetBlue has gotten into Rockbot and has incorporated the service in its JFK Terminal 5.
At the time of this post - 61 unique users have already tried Rockbot at Binghamton University and we’re excited to see how popular it will become.
If students, faculty or staff have questions about the service - they should contact Jennifer Keegin, associate director for Campus Activities at firstname.lastname@example.org.
