MILLENNIALS

d Multitaskers Motivated
The newest generation of college students are now
molding the focus of todays Student Affairs
profession. Understanding the characteristics of
millenials is imperative in order to ensure
student success in higher education. As Student
Affairs professionals, we are charged with
making sure that the needs of our incoming
students are met. This mission reaches much
further than just first year experience programs.
Being a student focused college, Diversity must
be on the cutting edge of student services,
which includes both understanding and
implementing such services. Tradition informs us
that we must all work together to ensure that
opportunities to engage students remain diverse
but, at the same time, student success is not
hindered. We must come together as a campus in
order to support what is important in our
classrooms.

RESEARCH
To be successful in understanding the newest
changes in student development, we must be
dedicated and thorough in our research of our
students. We must empower all members of our
educational family. By doing this, we ensure a
student focused environment of learning. We first
looked at research regarding characteristics stude
nts looked for when choosing a college. This
CIRP (Cooperative Institutional Research
Program) data gives us insight when we use it as
a comparison model.

FACEBOOK USERS
Facebook Users Trend 2005 - 2006
Facebook enrollment is expected to reach over
19,000 with the addition of the new freshman
class. Demographics show that many of these
students already have a Facebook account set up.
The trend is moving rapidly upwards with each
incoming class. Now that Facebook is
allowing high school students to register,
Facebook will play a vital role in our new
students transition to the college atmosphere.

The Importance of Facebook
It is apparent that Facebook has become a
successful medium for new college students.
Seeing that this new social phenomenon is
sweeping the country, we must greet it warmly and
find ways to enhance and integrate our own
relationship with it. In order to facilitate
this, we must understand the benefits and dangers
such technology may possess. In addition, we
must inform students of these findings. In
looking at this new generation of college
students, there are immediate considerations that
arise that are positive as well as negative. In
the next few slides, we will approach Facebook
based upon the benefits and dangers it may create
for our students.

FALL OPENING
The following are the proposed presentations
which will be utilized for Fall Opening in
August. We have met with several students,
faculty, and staff as we have focused ideas on
information pertaining to our incoming freshman
class. We have divided the presentation into two
sessions, one for students and one for parents.
We felt this was necessary because each group
needed to be informed of different aspects of
Facebook.
In order to prepare content for this
presentation, we scheduled several focus groups
with both students and parents. These were the
dates we met with each group

Overview of Facebook
Sally Smith Orientation Leader
Facebook was created in 2004 by Harvard student,
Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg created Facebook to help residential
students identify members of other residence
halls. - Zuckerberg stated, The idea for the
website was motivated by a social need at
Harvard to be able to identify people in other
residential houses. Harvard is a fairly
unfriendly place. While each residential house
listed directories of their residents, I
wanted one online directory where all students
could be listed. (Current, 2004)

What are students saying about Facebook?
Facebook has given me the ability to not only
find new friends, but locate old ones. It is a
versatile tool that enables me to create a space
that is just mine on the web. - Dan Booth,
Senior
I have a place to upload pics, send messages to
friends, and keep my friends updated with my new
info. - Brian Slenski, Junior

Legal Implications
Officer Joan Archer Diversity Campus Police
As many of you may know, we have had an incident
of Facebook misuse recently on our campus.
Through this event, it seems as if some of our
students are taking their actions on Facebook too
lightly. We want to make sure that you
understand the legal consequences of Facebook
misuse. Currently our student handbook is being
revised in order to implement procedures for
such situations.
OHIO Law 2917.11 Disorderly Conduct States that
no person shall cause inconvenience, harm, alarm,
or annoyance to another. Includes
harassment. Penalty Fines Possible time in
prison
OHIO LAW 2739.01 Slander and Libel States that
no person shall say or write false statements of
another. Also includes messages and
posts. Penalty Fines Possible time in prison
Electronic Communication Privacy act
1986 States that all electronic communication
falls as private, and carries civil
protection. Penalty Fines Possible time in
prison

FACEBOOK TUTORIAL
Following is a mock-up of the Facebook tutorial.
After the judicial incident earlier this year,
focus groups were organized to identify areas of
education for Facebook users. The following is a
rough draft and will be updated with the support
of faculty, students, and professional staff.
The tutorial is geared toward the possible risks
of Facebook. From our focus groups, we have
assessed that students have been able to learn
the positive attributes Facebook has to offer.
From the feedback we have received, it is quite
apparent that students have not yet grasped the
dangers that this new technology may possess. In
this mock-up, links are disabled, but will
utilize additional windows for further readings
(articles, journals, etc.). These readings have
not yet been finalized, but with continued
support from the student, faculty, and staff,
readings will be assigned.
In our attempts to provide the best service to
the new student at DC, we have included a comment
box at the end of this tutorial. We have also
asked participants to share relevant questions
that they feel are important. In doing this, we
can stay on track with our students as well as
empowering them as part of Diversitys
educational family.

Final Facebook Thoughts
  • As you know, we e-mailed all cooperative offices
    before this presentation, because we realize that
    with any new trend in the college experience,
    both benefits and dangers arise. We understand
    that even though we attempt to view student
  • development from as broad a lens as possible, we
    rely on the expertise and insight
  • of others on campus. We value your collaboration
    with our office and respect the
  • perspective you bring to the table.
  • We have taken the questions submitted to us, and
    answered them on the following slides.
  • If during the next few months before orientation
    you have more questions, we are
  • always happy and willing to discuss this
    information with you. We are setting up
  • a portal survey for all faculty as well. As we
    have spoken strongly about student
  • involvement within our educational family, our
    faculty are both bright and
  • understanding of student needs. We have had a
    faculty forum on this topic which
  • has yielded wonderful information. From that
    forum, we also discovered
  • the risks for our faculty and staff regarding
    Facebook.

How will the group ensure such programs stay up
to date and applicable to our ever-changing
student needs? - Continuing Facebook Forums -
Web surveys via Diversity College web portal -
Continuing to research trends in student
technology - Semester revision meetings - The
Student Perspective
We would like to introduce one of the newly
developed form of assessment for Diversity
College. Having stated our strong focus on
students, we wanted to design a format to keep
in touch with the students on our campus. We
wanted to hear their opinions, feedback, and
assessments. This way, we can keep a finger on
the pulse of our campus. We have gathered quite
a bit of information already from this web
application, which we aptly named, The Student
Perspective. The next slides will give a brief
description and screenshot of the current system.
We are including this in this presentation
because it is an affirmation of our commitment to
the students we support.

The Student Perspective
Your Perspective
Welcome to The Student Perspective. This is where
you contribute your vision and opinions as part
of the Diversity College family. There are
student forums on several topics as well as an
online chat function. Soon we will implement
Podcasts and Webinars from this location. If you
have any questions, please e-mail us.
The Student Perspective is still in a very simple
format. We have plans on creating a much more
intriguing interface soon. We have had quite a
bit of activity. Since the launch, we have had
over 45 of the student body log on. On this
page, they can post comments in the Forums.
They can also take our student services poll, and
we have integrated the schedule of our
interaction events. This is a powerful tool
which will be able to reach far into the student
community.

FACULTY AND STAFF CONCERNS
There are some concerns that arise as faculty and
staff start utilizing Facebook.
Pre-judgment of students Posting Own
Information - Making judgments of
students - Students are exceptional seekers
based on profile information of
information. If it is posted, may be
misleading and harmful. they will see it. Be
mindful of your own information-sharing.
Recruitment Acceptance -
Being able to assess students - Although this
new technology is still in their
comfort zone is a great fresh, it can be a
very beneficial way to understand
success, but tool for todays millennial
student. be wary of false judgment.

Our Learning Curve
We spent time brainstorming before researching
Facebook itself. After researching, we realized
that we had learned new pieces of information
about this technology as well as its impact on
our students.
Benefits - While we could automatically see
positive qualities in Facebook, we soon realized
the large potential with social
networking, self-presence, and broadening the
students perspective. When first looking
into this topic, we were strongly rooted
in the dangers it created, but after assessing it
on a different scale, could see it could
become a powerful developmental tool. Dangers
- The numbers of dangers are high with this
type of technology. It was easy to find
information on the destructive possibilities of
Facebook, but through research, we found
that the best way to attack these dangers was to
support students by teaching them
instead of trying to regulate without explanation.
