Good Interaction

July 30, 2007

Hello all, just a few notes:


Great job on the last assignment.  Lots of good questions and feedback amongst all of you.  Keep it up.  Not all of you particiapted, and not all of you participated on time, so that will be noted in your final grade.  However, 95% of you did a great job.  Thanks. 


A majority of the internship visits have taken place and I know that from the visits I made I was nothing but impressed.  Comments from “Keep them coming,” to “Best intern we have ever had,” were not uncommon in my travels last week.  Again, great job to all of you for keeping the reputation of the program at a high level. 


Each of you has a final project due at the end of your experience.  For those of you that are under my (Mark’s) supervision, you need to have your final project turned into me by Friday, August 10th.  Most of you will be done with your internships by then, and if you are not, your project needs to be.  Either email me them before that time, or make sure they are delivered via regular mail BEFORE Friday, August, 10th.  Anything after that will be considered late and graded accordingly.

Contact Dr. Jones, Dr. Thompson, or Professor Redmond for their due dates.


There will be no more assignments posted on the blog as some of you will be returning to school in the next couple of weeks.  From what I can tell, it has been another fantastic summer of internships.  Hopefully each of you learned something valuable, and I like I said earlier, we’ve had great reviews.

I wish each of you luck as you head back to school or out into the workforce.  I will miss working with each one of you.

Take care


Next Assignment

July 15, 2007

Hey all, I know you have been waiting for it.  We gave you a couple of weeks off, and now, here it is, your next assignment:


Each of you are doing a variety of things in various places this summer.  Take a look at past comments on the blog (from fellow classmates), find something interesting, and ask them a question about what they are doing.  This could relate to how they are coaching, what their perspective on a specific training method is, etc.  In return, when you are asked a question, you must respond to it.  You all have a wealth of information right now that you didn’t two months ago, let’s share it.

This assignment will be due no later than Friday, July 27th at 5:00 pm.


Each of the numerous sites I have visited over the past weeks have been interesting and all different.  However, the responses of the supervisors are the same, “Send us more SC students.”  You have no idea of great it is to hear this.  I look forward to hearing more of this as I get ready to head to Florida, Texas, Arizona, and Montana this week.  Keep up the excellent work, and for further advancing our reputation.

Take care
