Strengths Week

Feb. 4-8, 2013

We Need Your Help


I’m Leah Baus and I’m a Strengths Advocate. Thank you for dedicating your time to help drive the StrengthsQuest initiative on campus by helping K-State students with retention, engagement and well-being.

We currently are in the process of describing each event during the week and need your help. We would like to know if you have a specific name you would like your event to be called and any explanations of your event to add to our schedule and use on our flier. If not, we will name the events accordingly. Below is a rough draft of our schedule to give you an idea of where to start.

Please email me with any information you have before Winter Break.

Thank you for all of your hard work thus far,

Leah Baus

Strengths Advocate
