Students encouraged to join “Salve Spring Open Challenge” on Portfolium
The Center for Student Development invites undergraduate students to participate in the “Salve Spring Open Challenge” on Portfolium to win prizes and showcase their skills and accomplishments from their Salve Regina experience.
As part of this challenge, students are invited to submit an entry to display their best paper, project, research, internship work, leadership experience, volunteer work or presentation this year. Students can share their entry with others to collect votes, and a group of staff and faculty will select the top three entries to win the following prizes:
- First place: $100 bookstore gift card
- Second place: $50 bookstore gift card
- Third place: $25 bookstore gift card
The Salve Spring Open Challenge will close Tuesday, May 2. To participate, visit portfolium.com/challenge/salve_spring_open_challenge.

The Center for Student Development is working with Portfolium to provide all undergraduate students with access to a cloud-based ePortfolio with social networking features. Portfolium gives students the ability to create an organized, visual documentation of their academic, co-curricular and professional stories and works. Students will continue to have access to their Portfolium profiles after graduation and can share their portfolios with peers, faculty, future employers, graduate programs and many more outlets.
Students can create their Portfolium profiles using the email invitation that was sent to their Salve Regina email account on April 6. The Center for Student Development plans to work with departments across campus to help students develop their digital portfolio and capture their leadership and co-curricular experiences and accomplishments.
To learn more about Portfolium or get assistance with setting up the Portfolium profiles, email the Center for Student Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the office in the garden level of Miley Hall. Portfolium guides are also available on the Center for Student Development webpage.
