    Social Media Tip 

    If you don’t have much time to check your personal social media accounts during the day, spend about 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at the end of the day checking your notifications, messages and news feed.
    For example, find out who you can connect with on LinkedIn.  Check LinkedIn groups.  If you can participate in a discussion, do it.  Answer questions.  Ask questions.  Browse through your news in LinkedIn.  Share San Jac news in LinkedIn.  Is there a big event going on at the College?  Share it! Do we have a new program?  Share it!  Was your colleague recognized for an award?  Share it!
    You can do all or some of this in just 15 minutes.

    Men of Honor clothing drive a big success! 

    Thanks to the San Jacinto College community, the Men of Honor clothing drive was a success with donations of more than 45 men’s blazers and sports jackets, 15 suits, 100 pairs of pants, 60 button shirts, 80 T-shirts, 15 pairs of shoes, 15 belts, and socks. Women’s clothing included four suits, more than 40 tops, 20 pairs of pants (including jeans), and 30 pairs of shoes.

    Many students were able to receive free clothing before the remaining donations were picked up by Purple Heart due to outstanding work of the Men of Honor student volunteers and the coordination of the college-wide clothing drive by Leander Nash.
