RELAY FOR LIFE IU! American Cancer Society Fundraiser

So, why should you Relay? It’s simple, how many friends, family or loved ones do you know that have been impacted by cancer? That’s why!

On behalf of the Indiana University Relay for Life committee, we would like to invite you in joining us in this year’s Relay for Life event on April 4-5, 2014. Relay for Life is an event where communities come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track to help raise money for cancer research through the American Cancer Society. It’s an action-packed night, filled with fun and activities to keep everyone going strong all night! With so many people affected by the disease currently, it is important to support the cause and raise money to find the cure that will end the battle. Continue reading “RELAY FOR LIFE IU!

Career Dinner Symposium by the FASE Advisory Board (FAB)

The goal of the Career Dinner Symposium is to connect you with professionals who reflect your academic or career interests and allow you the opportunity to network.  During this event, you will sit down to have a wonderfully catered dinner with a professional who represent your discipline or field.  You will have the opportunity to ask career related questions of professionals to gain valuable insights, suggestions, or recommendations as to how you may duplicate such success. The professionals are purely sharing information based upon their previous experience(s), addressing any questions that you may have concerning preparation, trends, and/or opportunities for job shadowing, mentoring, etc.  So you should certainly take full advantage of the occasion.  The program will take place on Thursday, February 27, on the IU Bloomington campus in the Indiana Memorial Union Tudor Room from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Student liaisons needed for College Luminaries Program

The College Luminaries Program

The IU College of Arts and Sciences is launching a new initiative called the College Luminaries Program, which is inspired by Purdue’s prestigious Old Masters Program (http://www.purdueoldmasters.org/). The Luminaries Program Council (LPC), the 7 students on the governing body of the program, aims to invite Luminaries back to campus to share advice and experiences with students. Luminaries are alumni of the IU College of Arts & Sciences who have been successful in their professional fields. At the beginning of April, the LPC will select and invite the four Luminaries – one per division of the College: Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Studies, Natural and Mathematical Sciences, and International Programs – back to campus for a three-day event in October.  We are seeking 12 enthusiastic and dedicated student leaders to serve as liaisons to the Luminaries.
