2024 Graduates: Don’t forget to order your Cap-and-Gown!

All graduates participating in Commencement ceremonies on May 11, 2024 should purchase their cap-and-gown no later than Friday, March 8, 2024 to ensure on-time delivery.  All participants are expected to dress appropriately and only commencement regalia purchased through the Post University-approved vendor will be permitted.  Please visit our Commencement page for more information on ordering regalia.  Please direct any questions to the Graduation team in the Registrar’s office by emailing [email protected].

Fun Fact: The tradition of graduates wearing long gowns originated more than 700 years ago in Europe to keep scholars warm when buildings were not heated.

Tips to Prepare for the

Virtual Career Fair

Don’t forget – the Center for Career and Professional Development is hosting its Spring 2024 Virtual Career Fair on Tuesday, February 27, 2024 from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Eastern time on Handshake.  Here are some tips to help you prepare:

  1. Upload your Resume to Handshake.  It’s also a good idea to review your profile and make sure that it is updated too
  2. Take some time to research the employers that will be in attendance.  Be sure to research more than just the information listed on Handshake
  3. Ask questions.  Take some time to prepare a list of questions you will ask employers when you meet with them virtually

Women’s History Month Begins March 1

Women’s History Month, celebrated each March, commemorates and encourages the “study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American Society.”  Sponsored by the National Women’s History Alliance, the theme for 2024 celebrates “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion” and recognizes the importance of women who work to create a positive change in society and advocate for the elimination of bias and discrimination.  To learn more about Women’s History Month, visit the National Women’s History Alliance website.  

Be on the lookout – we have a lot of exciting events and activities to commemorate this month!

Even the most dedicated are going to encounter setbacks and time constraints that can dissuade them from exercising. Life is unpredictable. Work, kids’ schedules, appointments, social events, sickness, tiredness or just
plain not feeling like it—all can close in on the amount of time dedicated to a workout routine. The important thing is to find a way to incorporate some exercise into the day, no matter how crazy your schedule becomes. Here are
some suggestions:
– Wake up early and spend an extra 15-30 minutes walking/exercising before school or work
– Take a 15-minute break from school or work and walk around your building or neighborhood
– Take the stairs instead of the elevator every chance you get. For an even greater workout, take the stairs two at a time
– Work out while watching your favorite TV show
