Each month, we’ll show you “Student how-to’s”, University-wide data pulled directly from Handshake, and share relevant behind-the-scenes information about the specific topics. 

Please send any questions about Handshake to your college/campus superuser, and any questions related to this newsletter to [email protected] .
