Chapters In The Spotlight

“We Connect Now” (WCN) at  North Carolina State University (NCSU)

Students at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina organized a We Connect Now chapter in the Fall of 2011 and have created a Facebook page (“WCN@NCSU”). Check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WCN.NCSU.

Illinois State University

A group of students at Illinois State University organized a WCN club during the Spring semester of 2011 and have their own page in the Web at http://illinoisstate.collegiatelink.net/organization/we_connect_now
The group has also drafted and got approved its constitution.  Congratulations! Best of luck in the upcoming Fall 2011 Semester. BRAVO!

Hofstra University

A group of students created a We Connect Now Chapter in the Fall of 2010. We Connect Now at Hofstra University (“WCN”) is an organization that works in tandem with Career Services and Services for Students with Disabilities at Hofstra to provide students, both disabled and not, with a social environment in which to gain knowledge about job opportunities.  WCN is a relatively new club at Hofstra, and so, it’s members have a unique opportunity to shape the club to serve their needs.  WCN is looking forward to hosting CEOs from large corporations and other individuals whose lectures can provide Hofstra students with advice about resumes and applying for jobs.  WCN hopes to serve as a filter through which its members can understand and utilize all the benefits that the Career Center has to offer.

WCN has joined forces with Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) and Career Services at Hofstra, and is working together with them for the encouragement, education and celebration of diversity by sponsoring an essay contest for PRIDE Week at Hofstra (March 7 – 11, 2011). Each student of the Hofstra Community will be able to compose a 200-300 word composition answering that very question and will have the opportunity to read their work in front of a podium during PRIDE week. SSD, Career Services and WCN will judge each essay and present the participants of the best three works with a Barnes and Nobles Gift card prize for the eloquence and excellence of their compositions. https://hofstra.collegiatelink.net/organization/weconnectnow

We congratulate the Hofstra University We Connect Now Chapter on their efforts.

We Connect Now chapters and Campus Connectors are part of We Connect Now’s grassroots efforts to improve the lives and opportunities of college students with disabilities.
