Document Your Involvement at ESU with a Co- Curricular Transcript: The Co-Curricular Transcript will allow students to develop official documentation of their involvement while at ESU and is being developed by the Office of Student Activities. This complement to your academic transcript can give you an extra boost when applying for jobs and graduate school. WarriorLink – the one-stop location for involvement, leadership and networking – will power the program. WarriorLink can be accessed at (please note there is no “www”). This powerful new tool will allow student organizations to better connect with new and existing members and be the basis for the Co-Curricular Transcript program. Those who are involved with student organizations should work with their organization’s leader to get their page set up and to add all of their current members. This will begin the process for a student to develop his/her Co-Curricular Transcript. If you have any questions, contact the Director of the University Center and Student Activities, John Robinson, Ed. D., at or 570-422-3607.
