If You Can’t See Your Tiles on the Student Portal:

To display the tiles, log into your student portal and then follow the three steps outlined in the graphic above.

The Center for Academic Success’ Murder Mystery Challenge
The Center for Academic Success invites you to participate in our Creative Writing Murder Mystery Challenge.
Come by The Center and investigate the crime scene to help you write the best scenario as to what happened! You are allowed to speak to the witnesses in the Center for Academic Success and ask what they have seen. Witness statements can be found on cubicles in the center! Feel free to read them if the actual witness is not present at the time! However, you are not allowed to touch or remove any of the evidence.
Online and Virtual Main Campus students can participate by reviewing the storyline, witnesses, and statement by clicking on this link: Murder Mystery Storyline, Witnesses, and Statements, and viewing the photo of the crime scene included.
Your creative writing piece should be a minimum of 500 to a maximum of 1000 words. Use the evidence and statements from witnesses to create your own version of what could have happened to the victim.
Your story must be written in APA format:
- All text should be double-spaced
- Use one-inch margins on all sides
- All paragraphs in the body are indented
- Make sure that the title is centered on the page with your full name
- Use 12-point font throughout
- All pages should be numbered in the upper right-hand corner
The deadline for your submission will be Monday, October 31, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. You can email your submission to [email protected] or walk into the center and hand in your short story. Please do this before the deadline. The winner will be announced by November 11th and awarded a prize!
Good Luck and Happy Halloween
Have You Scheduled Your Appointment?
Registration for the Spring 2023 semester officially begins on Monday, October 24, 2022. Are you ready to register for classes? Here are the steps you need to complete to schedule classes for next semester:
STEP 1: Make sure you are clear to register
If you have any holds on your account, you will not be permitted to register for spring semester classes, and any advising appointments you have scheduled will be canceled. Before making an appointment with your advisor, contact your Student Finance Specialist or visit the Student Finance Office in Torrance Hall to make sure you don’t have any holds.
STEP 2: Make an appointment with your advisor
Once you have confirmation you don’t have any holds, schedule an appointment with your advisor. Check your Post student email for more information and a link to schedule that appointment. Please note: registration appointments are scheduled in 30-minute increments, and you should not miss class for a registration appointment. If you are more than 5 minutes late to your appointment, it will be canceled and you will need to reschedule.
STEP 3: Arrive at your appointment on time, prepared with any questions you may have
Think about how this semester is going, what classes you may be interested in taking, and any questions you may have related to your academic, career, and personal goals. If your professors have recommended any courses, please make sure to bring those recommendations with you.
Appointments will be held in the Leever Dining hall from October 24-November 4, 2022, and then in Torrance Hall beginning November 7. Contact [email protected] with any questions!
Weekly Wellness Corner
The Weekly Wellness Corner is brought to you by the Counseling Center – here, you’ll find content, tips, tricks, programs, and resources to help you thrive as a Post Eagle!
Creating changes from the inside out. The more you heal, the more you…
The more you heal, the more peace you’ll want in your life. You won’t feel comfortable bonding with people over negativity and gossip. Keeping misery and messy company will no longer be an option for you.
The moreyou heal, the more you’ll enjoy your own space, time, and peace. You won’t be so quick to fill the silence and stillness of your life with noise and busyness.
The more you heal, the more compassion you’ll have for people who aren’t on their journey yet. You’ll learn not to internalize their projections and start to identify when their lashing out has nothing to do with you.
The more you heal, the more comfortable you get with doing it alone sometimes. You’ll start to understand that yes, healing can be lonely, but it is also liberating.
The more you heal, you’ll want to surround yourself with people who are good for your mental health. You’ll find that you’re settling less and prioritizing healthy relationships that are safe and supportive.
