we've got signatures, help us get to 100 by January 22, 2011
As many of you already know, Kaplan University offers numerous opportunities for educational development and professionalism. While attending Kaplan's online program has many benefits, there's just one thing missing, SORORITY LIFE! Help me bring a piece of traditional college life to our virtual campus.
You're probably asking yourself, how is it possible, since we attend online college. Lucky for us, modern technology has enabled us to meet and communicate virtually via the internet (i.e. Facebook, Skype, Twitter and MySpace). By using the many resources that Kaplan provides in combination with internet forums, we can produce a successful and productive sorority of our very own.
Once again, "HELP BRING SORORITY LIFE TO THE KU CAMPUS" by signing this petition!!
