I have spent the last semester working to develop the new LSO website and have a lot of plans to update the current content and features to make it efficient, accessible and visually appealing. Please vote for me so that I can continue this work into the next semester.

Virtual Student Liaison:
Leanne Armstrong

I have been a full-time virtual student for the past year while attending the University of Arizona and took some online classes from ASU while living in the Phoenix area. I am motivated and enthusiastic about helping virtual students create camaraderie amongst each other. As the Virtual Student Liaison, I would like to:

• Be accessible to students with concerns and issues regarding being a virtual student in order to pass the information to the school.

• Create a blog specifically geared toward those who will be graduating in May 2008.

• Set up a group rate at a hotel for students traveling into town and coordinate an open house at the hotel the evening prior to graduation. I would like to coordinate this event with the LSO and SLA groups so that all graduating students (and their families?) will be invited. Pre-registration would be required and probably a small fee if we don’t have the funds available.

• I have an idea of creating a virtual map that displays dots where students are located, then giving the students the opportunity to email other students through a gateway similar to Craigslist.

• Invite virtual student alumni to participate in blogs to share their thoughts and experiences.
