Student Involvement

 As it is now a tradition, SJSU welcomed its students with a plethora of information and
resources at the "ASK ME" stations (tables). During Spring Welcome Days (January 27th to February 2nd), campus volunteers (faculty, staff, and students) provided information about classes, locations, gave away maps, stress balls, hand warmers and pencils to students who stopped by one of the three campus stations. The goal of the “ASK ME” stations is to help students transition into their new schedule for the Spring semester, help them find their way around campus, create connections and answer their questions.
