Student Success Navigators: The Student Success Navigators met with Regent Mike Cheney on Monday, February 15th to provide an update on their first semester activities. Navigators are assigned to academic colleges to provide mentoring to the NMSU 2015 first year student cohort. The Navigators have also launched a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nmsunavigators.
Aggie Activity Council: Aggies Activities Council hosted comedy duo Dave and Ethan in the Corbett Auditorium. The Comedic Dating Coaches kept the crowd laughing while sharing tips and real life advice for the college dating scene. Students enjoyed a one-hour show and winners of the raffle won $75 worth of goodies. Aggies Activities Council had a great turnout of 175 students. Their next event will be 90’s Night on February 25th in the Aggie Lounge.
Calling All Aggies Enrollment Campaign: Beginning in November of 2015 NMSU volunteers started calling students who had not yet enrolled for spring 2016. These volunteers continued calling until the first week of classes. Calling All Aggies campaign included 3,164 calls out to students with more than half enrolling after receiving notification. The efforts made by numerous volunteers cannot be understated. Often the student called is very appreciative of NMSU’s help.
