Last Away Game

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Today is finally the last day that we travel away for a Saints volleyball game.  This year, the schedule was different than prior because they were trying something new.  We have had a lot of games in which we play 2 games in one night.  I think that when the NCAA or our conference (I’m not sure which one) decided this, they thought we would cut back on travel, but I think we have been on the road more than ever before.  Although I’m glad it’s our last away game of the season, it also means that the season is almost done.  We have just two more weeks left and then I’m done being a collegiate athlete.  That’s a bittersweet feeling for sure.  I hope that as everyone else finishes up their fall season that they go out winning and playing to the best of their abilities.  Good luck Saints!!

CHOICES Kickball

Monday, October 16th, 2017

The CHOICES Kickball Tournament is this Friday, October 20th, in the BWC Fieldhouse.  The event starts at 6:15pm and will go until around 10pm.  So far, it sounds like we have 6 teams, but would ideally like 8.  There are free prizes given throughout the night as well as a championship prize and the best dressed team prize.  There will also be some free snacks given to those who come and those who play.  I think this will be a fun event where students can just go and hang out for a while on a Friday night.  The event isn’t all night long, so I really hope some people can take some time to come and cheer on their friends if anything.  I hope to see a lot of familiar faces on Friday, sign up people!!!

Well, this is a platform where students can access lots of career opportunities based on their interests and skills and more. Visit css.joinhandshake.com to learn more and create an account. Rumor has it recruiters are using this tool to grab CSS students before they even graduate.

Career workshop for international students

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The Office of International Programs recently organized a workshop to help acquaint international students with immigration policies and school policies regarding work on or off campus. In addition to this, students got to learn from Mary Anderson, Director of Career Services, as well as a panel of international students who have completed internships or research. I was part of the panel and felt honored to contribute to the experiences of fellow international students looking to develop their career portfolio.
