Meet the Artists

As Women’s History Month draws to a close, we’re excited to introduce you to the women artists who created the murals that adorn our campus buildings.  This year, we commissioned five women artists from across the country and around the world to create original murals for installation on the exterior of our campus academic buildings and the Traurig Library building.

Amna Basheer

Amna is currently based in Los Angeles, but she hails from Kerala in South India. She made the jump to full-time freelance artist and designer after working with several design organizations. Her cultural roots play a role in her designs, evident in her choice of color and the figures she adds to each mural.

Isabela Humphrey

Isabela is a designer from North Carolina. Using her experience in fashion, she creates vibrant and colorful pieces that have gained national recognition. She uses her skill and talent to bring attention to social issues and to help other artists do the same.

Carra Sykes

Carra is a Texas-based artist who lives between Austin and Houston. Her skill set allows her to create unique and authentic work that has been gaining her recognition throughout the country. Her work has allowed her to partner with brands like Adobe, Twitter, and Dr. Martens.

Yuke Lia

Yuke is a graduate from the School of Visual Arts with an MFA in Illustration, as well as the Visual Essay Program. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for eight years and credits the pandemic for making her grow stronger as an artist.

Jessica Lee

Jessica is an artist and illustrator originally from Korea and Australia. She is currently based in San Francisco, CA, where she specializes in art direction, campaigns and strategy development, branding, graphic design, lettering, and illustration. She enjoys creating whimsical and inviting representations of her experiences.

Upcoming Title IX

Climate Assessment

In an effort to ensure that we are fully supporting our students, Post University will be asking you to complete a climate assessment about our Title IX related policies, procedures and services. The surveys will be made available in April. We value your opinions and look forward to your feedback.

Key Card Access Goes Into Effect on Tuesday, April 2, 2024

On Tuesday, April 2, all resident students and commuters will use their Post University Student Identification (ID) Card to enter any building on campus. All the exterior doors of campus buildings will require you to swipe your University Student ID against a card reader to gain entry to a building. Remember to carry your Student ID Card at all times.

This improvement is a proactive measure to maintain a secure and safe environment for our community. Campus Safety and my office appreciate your attention to adhering to this new protocol.

All on-campus students and commuters, if you need a Student ID Card, please contact Dan Guerrera at [email protected].

Tips to Make the Most of the Spring 2024 Career Fair

The Spring 2024 Career Fair will offer you many opportunities to connect with employers and advance your career and internship search.  It’s a great chance to practice your networking skills and deliver your elevator pitch to help you get more comfortable with having professional conversations.  You’ll also have the chance to meet with employers from a variety of fields – which is especially important if you are unsure what you want to do when you graduate.  Here are some tips to help you make the most of the experience, courtesy of Handshake:

  1. Prepare some questions.  Research the employers who will be in attendance and create questions you would like to ask them about what it’s like to work at the organization, what opportunities exist for employee growth, or anything you’d like to learn about the company
  2. Practice introducing yourself.  It doesn’t need to be perfect, but you want to be confident when speaking with the representatives from the organization at the career fair
  3. Come prepared.  Bring a notebook, and don’t forget to print out several copies of your resume to share with employers
  4. Send a thank you.  Be sure to ask for contact information while speaking with organization representatives and send a thank you note to them.  Share what you learned about the organization, and thank them for their time speaking with you
