Saying “Thank You” Isn’t Enough
Tuesday March 18th, 2014 from 7:00PM—8:00PM in Taughannock Falls Room
What is the best way to say thank you? Gary Chapman and Paul White, authors of "The 5 Languages of Appreciation," suggest that people speak different "languages" and if you do not communicate in a way meaningful to them, they will not feel valued. Learn the principles behind the 5 languages and learn how to apply them in your student organization, group project, and internship.

Wednesday March 19th, 2014 from 4:00PM—5:00PM in Taughannock Falls Room
