Happiness blooms in April – come and see it for yourself! Speaking of nose-wiggling, tail-twitching happiness, who’s ready to celebrate Easter?! Hunting for colorful eggs, stuffing mouths full of chocolate and candy, and attending church services are a few of the traditions celebrated every year on this holiday. But where, oh where, did the Easter Bunny make a debut? Well, it’s a German tradition brought over in the 1700s that was originally called “Osterhase”. Check out more details at the link below!
A slight sense of warmth, a slow dose of breeze.
As one looks toward the sky, the snowy dull turns bright.
Green leaves were meant to sprout from branches, yet something else alight.
This is not one’s usual garden, the branches are still bare of emerald.
In its place, is of spotty whitish pink,
While coloring what it still is, a gloomy grey.
The sight was to change, from a brownish bore to a gathering delight.
Without much mentioned, this blushing magnified across the grounds.
The air gathers strength, the pedals start to drift.
In a sea of cherry pitches, one can exclaim.
With the blossom of cherry, spring is upon a new season of endless joy.

Career Fair Tips for College Students
Associate Faculty member and Senior Recruiter for the Walt Disney Company Roberto Mucciacciaro has some tips for making the most of the Center for Career and Professional Development’s Career Fair on April 4, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the
It is that time of the year again! They can be daunting, exhausting, and extremely overwhelming, but as a college student, how can you make the most out of your school’s career fair? I’ve laid out a few tips for you from a recruiter’s point of view! We have all gone through it. As a college student, you come across a flyer about an upcoming career fair, and you know the last four years of college have flown by, so now it’s time to prepare for life after college.
But how do you ensure you make the most of that career fair and stand out amongst the dozens and even hundreds of other students in attendance as well? Hopefully, the tips I provide below will help you prepare for your next career fair and ease the nerves as you attend it.
Dress appropriately and be confident in your interactions!
We understand the career fair may be at the building across from your dorm, but don’t show up as if you left your 8 a.m. class on a Friday! Be sure you are dressed appropriately and have your materials (resume/cover letter/demo reels, etc.) in a professional portfolio.
As you approach the booth, be confident in your approach, and ensure you are speaking loudly and clearly, so that the booth personnel can hear your elevator pitch!
If you found the love of your life on a train ride to the city, you wouldn’t let the train leave without getting their contact information. Similarly, once the career fair is over, do not let the interactions stop there!
Be sure to send a thank you note to the people you met and remind them of who you are. Remember, the booth personnel probably spoke to dozens, if not hundreds, of prospects at the career fair. Share a reminder from your elevator pitch or a connection point you made during the session, so they can remember who you were and so you can keep the relationship going.
Some interactions from the career fair may not turn into a job at that very moment, but it could open up doors to that company’s network and even form a mentoring relationship with the personnel you may meet. Be open-minded in how you handle these interactions!
