With school, work, a social life (does anyone even have those anymore?), and family (unless you left them back home) taking up most of your time, it may be hard to keep track of all those extracurricular activities you took up this semester.
To help you out, here are some tips on our resources that will help you always stay up-to-date with UNLV DECA:
1.) Email. Subscribe to DECA Direct emails to see what DECA is doing nationwide. UNLV DECA’s emails may end up in your spam folder, so if you haven’t seen anything from us in your inbox, the spam folder would be a good place to check. After, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list and remove the messages from spam so they aren’t deleted. If any email requires a response, please respond promptly. Our team can get very busy, so your speed will help us tremendously.
2.) If you wake up early in the morning, telling yourself you’ll do homework but hop on Facebook instead, then spend that time judiciously and check UNLV DECA’s page for any updates. Like our Facebook page, then go to your preferences by clicking the gear icon on your newsfeed. Go to “Prioritize Who to See First” and find UNLV DECA. This will make it easier for you to see what’s happening in our organization. Then, you can go finish that 10-page aper you procrastinated on.
3.) If you haven’t synced your Google Calendar with our’s yet, be sure to do so. Instructions on how to do that can be found at http://unlvdeca.com/never-miss-an-event-again/.
4.) Read our blog on unlvdeca.com. We’ll post tips, news, and other cool stuff every week to help you #BeEpic. Posts generally will be shared on social media, but head over to our website every Sunday if you want to be the first to be in-the know.
5.) Now that you’re caught up-to-date with all of UNLV DECA’s events, and hopefully caught up on your homework, your last task is to prepare for the unexpected. You’ll never know who you’ll meet or what opportunities will arise. Keep your UNLV DECA shirt clean and your lapel pin ready with a nice set of professional attire thrown in for good measure. You won’t know when it’s time to #BeEpic.
