#100DaysSLCC Kick Off: Who the Bleep is that Sheep?

SLCC’s Academic and Career Advising office is “coming of age” with a brand new career exploration social media campaign!  #100DaysSLCC will kick off the “100 Days of Career Exploration” where students can explore major options in a fun and interactive way.  The yearly mascot, following the Chinese Zodiac, begins with Peep the Sheep. Follow along on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Blogspot to see what Peep is up to and learn about the various programs and resources that are offered at the college.  Peep and the campaign will debut during Welcome Week for Fall 2015 and continue through the Fall and Spring semesters. Even though it’s the year of the sheep, don’t be afraid to break away from the flock. Join our 100 Days of Career Exploration and choose a major and career path!  http://www.slcc.edu/academicadvising/index.aspx
