"I was able to make direct contact with probably 50 students, 25 of whom were kind enough to put their information on the contact sheet. So we've got some follow-up potential," Hayes said.
Of those students, there was a wide range of interest in Harper College athletics, including in track and field, volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball, water polo club, and interest in being a team manager. A majority of those students were in-district students.
Prospective students were given contact information, the latest Harper College Athletics Brochure, and a Harper Hawks sticker at the athletics table. Also, the Harper Hawk mascot was in attendance to greet students and was available for photo opportunities.
Athletics was located in room W214 along with other Student Support Services at Harper College that included: Academic Advising & Counseling, Academic Centers/Success Services, Tutoring & Writing Center, Access and Disability Services, Career Development Center, Center for New Students & Orientation, Dual Credit, Job Placement Resource Center, One Million Degrees, One Stop (Financial Aid/Registration), Office of Student Involvement, and Phi Theta Kappa/Honors Program/First Year Seminar/Learning Communities.
