Who Came up with Corsair Connect?
In Mid-December 2009, the College launched a naming contest asking students to submit creative name suggestions to replace the “Student Self-Service” name. The contest ended on February 26, 2010 with entries from 936 individual students, many of whom sent in multiple suggestions.
The Associated Students convened a committee of student leaders to review the entries and decide on a winner. The judging panel came up with Corsair Connect as the winning entry. The college provided a $150 gift card to the SMC bookstore as the prize for the student who came up with the winning name, but…three (3) different students all submitted Corsair Connect as one of their entries.
Through the generosity of the Associated Students, who matched the college’s prize by providing two additional gift cards, all three students who suggested Corsair Connect received their gift card and are being highlighted here.
