Recently, Post University honors students were invited to attend an event at the Palace Theater where they had the opportunity to meet and listen to Deepak Chopra, an Indian-American author and medicine advocate.
In the early winter, the University established the online honors program. This was the first honors program event with the inclusion of both on-campus and online honors students. While memorable because of the speaker, it was also memorable for two Post online students. Renee Velazquez and Desiree Martinez are both students in the Malcolm Baldrige School of Business and were excited to have the opportunity to meet at the Deepak event.
“I had reached out to her when I saw that she was in the online student lounge,” said Velazquez. “I recognized her name from the Accounting 111H discussion boards. We had been corresponding and discussed meeting up at the event. It was exciting to actually meet one of my classmates.”
This was the first Post University event for both Velazquez and Martinez, both having a very positive experience.
“It was amazing that we got to meet and greet with Deepak,” said Velazquez. “It was inspiring to hear about his organization that supports suicide prevention.”
“I wish I were able to live on campus and attend more events,” said Martinez. “I felt very welcomed by everyone, and I will definitely be interested in going to more events in the future!”
