Curious what we did in Sacramento last week?

Here is a short video summary highlighting our Health Policy trip to Sacramento last week.  One of the recurring messages throughout our time at the Capitol was the incredible opportunity for careers in our state government and the growing need that exists.  For example, in the Department of Public Health (with a staff of nearly 4000), there is a wave of retirement in the midst, with almost 65% of the employees reaching the retirement window in the next two years!  

So, the next time you ask your faculty advisor about where to find a job - one answer is pretty clear!

Spring and Summer Advising Availability

The advising availability schedule has been updated and all of the dates are posted.  Fall 2015 graduation applications are the absolute priority up through the May 1st (firm) University deadline - which means - forms must be completely processed by our department prior to May 1st!     The next priority will be academic planning for the fall semester.  To support students in academic planning we have an event scheduled on May 5th from 12-2 in Hugh Gillis Hall (room 122) where faculty will be talking about summer opportunities, faculty led programs, and academic planning.   If you do not get a chance to meet with an advisor during the dates that are available this spring there will be a few opportunities over the summer to meet on campus, but all should plan on attending the fall welcome assembly.

Fall 2015 Welcome Back Assembly is being planned for August 19th from 1-5.  It is expected that all students in the Health Science and Recreation department will attend this event - so save the date!   We will discuss important department information, student clubs and involvement, events, and advising.  This is a great way to connect and stay up to date with processes, procedures, expectations, and opportunities.
