Celebrating Men’s Soccer!

On February 21, 2024 the University hosted a dinner for the Men’s Soccer Team to recognize their tremendous season as well as acknowledge their dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  Check out all the photos from the celebration!

2023 Season by the Numbers

  • In December 2023, United Soccer Coaches in their top 25 poll placed Post University Men’s Soccer in the 14th spot in the nation.
  • The team finished the 2023 with a 13-2-6 record and a program-best 9-0-2 record in conference play while losing just one game at home and on the road with identical 5-1-3 records in both locations.
  • For the ninth time in program history and fifth straight season in which Men’s Soccer has competed, the Eagles saw one of their own make the D2CCA All-America Team as senior defender Felix Nassen was named to the Third Team.
  • Men’s Soccer has appeared three times in the NCAA DII Tournament’s Round of 16 beginning in 2019.
Don’t miss out on any of the action – head on over to the Athletics website for upcoming competitions, season standings, stats, and links to game live streams. Don’t forget to tag your social media posts with #GoPostEagles – we’ll share our favorites on the digital screens around campus, on the official Post University accounts, and in this newsletter!

Term 5 Begins March 4 – Helpful Tips for Online Learning Success
courtesy of YOU@Post

Juggling work and family is already challenging enough without throwing online classes into the mix, but you’ve chosen to pursue an online degree for a reason – whether it is the path to your dream job, to increase your earning potential, or to pursue your academic passions.  Try on these tips to help balance your workload and succeed in your course load:

Make a plan (and a back-up plan for your back up plan, too): Creating a daily routine that fits all your tasks, obligations, and study time is key to making sure you can fit everything in. Block out specific time frames for each activity and try to stick to them using online reminders, schedules and/or alarms.
Be realistic with your course load: The reality is, you have responsibilities other than just studying. Getting an online degree is a great goal, but doesn’t need to necessarily be done at breakneck speed. Test the waters by signing up for one or two classes – you can always take on more down the road.
Meal Planning and Prep: Plan and cook tasty and nutritious meals at the beginning of the week or on weekends for yourself (and your family if you have one). No matter what scheduling curveballs are thown at you during the week, you’ll always have something to avoid last minute grocery shopping.
Self Care: In the midst of all this organizing, studying, caretaking, cooking and working, don’t forget to look after yourself. Be sure to schedule in some time for activities you really enjoy to help you relax – such as hobbies, sports and spending time with your friends/family.
Although taking online courses can be a major commitment, it is massively rewarding when you see your efforts pay off.  For even more tips and strategies, as well as additional resources, visit YOU@Post.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Campus Safety Update – ID Required to Access Campus Buildings

We pride ourselves on the health and safety of our campus community so over the last year we have been working on “Project Safety” which has included the installation and/or upgrade of Intruder proof, ADA compliant locks on all upper campus interior doors, an integrated camera system, integrated emergency speakers, and now, as the next phase, key card access to the exterior doors of all campus buildings.

Starting Monday February 5, we will begin installing key card access on the exterior doors to the remaining residence halls, similar to East Hall, Middle Hall, and Okinaga Hall, as well as all other buildings on campus.  This phase will take up to four weeks to complete.  Upon completion of the key card reader installation, all students and associates will need to carry their badges with them at all times. Access to these buildings will only be through key card access. As a reminder, please do not prop open the doors and do not open the doors to unknown individuals.  Students who have issues with their ID should contact Dan Guerrera in Campus Life at [email protected] or 203.568.1603.

Have You Met With A Career Advisor?

As the academic year starts to wind down, and with graduation on the horizon, “what’s next” is probably on your mind.  Whether you’re in the market for a summer job or internship, or you’ll be leaving the nest to embark on your first career or looking to change/advance careers, the team in the Center for Career and Professional Development can help you as you prepare for your next steps.
​The job and internship search process can be a daunting task even for the most experienced professionals, and securing a job involves a lot of preparation and work. The career advisors are here to help you understand the pieces to the puzzle and be better equipped not only to develop the documents and skills to land a job, but also to go the distance to achieve your future career.  They can help you with everything from searching for jobs/internships, creating/updating your resume, preparing for an interview, and more.
