LinkedIn Connection Challenge

Connection Challenge

Welcome to LinkedIn and the Herbst Academic Center LinkedIn group for student-athletes.  Now that you have started to build your LinkedIn profile, it’s time to start building your network.  The people you connect with fuels the power of this platform.

As you progress in your journey here at CU, you will meet all types of people including, teammates, coaches, instructors, alumni, and local community members and business leaders.  If you make a connection with them face-to-face, you will want to follow up immediately to add them to your LinkedIn network so you can continue to cultivate a professional relationship.

To help you get started building your network, we want to issue you a LinkedIn Connection Challenge.  This activity will familiarize you with the process of adding new people to your LinkedIn network.  If you need help completing this challenge you can contact me directly or ask your Academic Coordinator for assistance.

Follow the steps below to complete the Connection Challenge by Friday, August 14.  (Note:  DO NOT attempt this exercise until you have completed the first four steps in Building A Great Student Profile.)

  1. Connect with me. Corey Edwards LinkedIn Profile
  2. Connect with your Academic Coordinator.

Hurysz Sets CU Mile Record

I am so happy that I was there to witness Jake’s outstanding performance at the Husky Invite in Seattle, racing to a sub-four minute mile and setting a new school record in the event.  He crossed the finish line at 3:58.13 which also placed him in the top 10 of collegiate milers this season.  I’m looking forward to more great things from Jake this year as he wraps up his career and prepares to graduate this May.

Honor Code Awareness

Passing notes in class

Did you know that part of Ethical Leadership is being aware of and abiding by our campus Honor Code?

It is extremely important to exhibit and maintain academic integrity in all the work you do. It is my job to ensure that you are aware of the expectations placed upon you and the pitfalls that lie ahead of you. With this understanding, I’m requiring all of my students to take the Herbst Academic Center Honor Code Quiz during the semi-annual Honor Code Awareness Weeks, February 15 – 28, 2015.
