DIOPP01 Club Advisor Annual Update

Posted on Updated on

On 10/6/17 at 1:15pm, I attended the DIOPP01 Club Advisor Annual Update presented by Christy Shields at the Student Services Building on Wake Tech Community College’s South Campus in Raleigh, NC.


There were a lot of great questions at this session, and they gave me a lot to think about! For those who were unable to attend, they will be scheduling additional sessions on both the main and north campuses soon.


Below is the follow up information we discussed.

Eagle Rewards

One important point covered in the meeting was the Eagle Rewards Program

This program is being soft-launched this semester and is only open by invitation to certain student groups. Please share this information with students in your clubs. If you’d like someone from Student Activities to present the information at one of your club meetings, please send a meeting request through Outlook to all of the following people: Christy Shields, Luanne Burns, Sandra Gibson, Treva Aiken, and Michael Schneider. The person that can attend will accept the request.


I have transcribed a sample email to send to students in your clubs.

Dear student:

You are invited to participate in a brand new program that offers you rewards for participating in particular Wake Tech events. The program is called Eagle Rewards and as you build points, you can turn them in for prizes! As a student leader, you will be the first to try this new program!

To participate, click here to register. You get a sign-up bonus and 50 points just for registering! Once you’ve registered, we will send you a calendar of events. When you go to the events, make sure that you check in at the Eagle Rewards table so that you receive credit for your participation.


It is important to note: The program is being tested and is available by invitation only to particular student groups.
