Our thoughts on everything college

#UQknowscollege Knows Spring Break

Our Virtual Interns from across the country are in the midst of Spring Break season. We’re loving the photos they’re sharing from their trips (from beaches, to alternative Spring Breaks, to traveling abroad), so we wanted to share our favorites so far:

Here’s to an Inspiring 2013

Happy New Year! We’ve been so inspired lately by our friends, advisors, clients, and students, and we wanted to share how we’re embracing 2013.

Every Monday morning, the whole UQ team visits a new coffee shop around town to kick off the week, chatting about upcoming projects, planning out our week, and catching up on fun from the weekend. At the end of every meeting, we pick a quote that reflects our motivation for the week. And when we return to the office, we write that quote on our chalkboard wall to serve as a daily reminder of inspiration. (Side note: you can see some of our favorites so far on Instagram @UQmarketing)

One of our favorite quotes shared with us by a team member is “Inspect what you expect.” It got us thinking, and we wanted to act on it. This week, we’re launching a new Student Portal to help us do just that- inspect what we’re expecting. Here’s a little teaser:

We can’t wait for our students to experience the new UQ Portal, having real-time access to projects, leader boards, files, and everything else that enables their success on campus.

Another point of motivation for us in 2013: we have the most amazing clients! It is such a privilege to work with all of our clients, and we’ve been so inspired about the philanthropic work that Pure Charity and Cross-Cultural Solutions is doing. As a company, we’re setting a goal for every team member to be generous every month in 2013- whether it’s giving back to a favorite project on Pure Charity, becoming a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters, or volunteering abroad at one of Cross-Cultural Solutions’ amazing project sites (a personal goal!)

Here’s to an inspiring and productive New Year. We will leave you with the quote on our wall this week…
