Hello Eagles,

As we are halfway into the month of October, your Student Government Association is excited to share our recent activities and accomplishments. We have been working with you and behind the scenes to ensure your experience is nothing short of amazing. Here’s a recap of what we’ve been working on:

Building SGA Awareness

Informing and building rapport with the students has been one of our main focuses this month, as students need to understand what the SGA is and how we strive to benefit their experience at Post. Attending your hall meetings to introduce the SGA executive board was the first step in our plan to grow student involvement and empower you to voice concerns and suggestions. We want you to know that you have the ability to influence your experience, and we are here to facilitate that.

Post App Integration

What does every student have? A phone. As a student, you need a useful tool to access information as well as help you communicate and vocalize concerns. We want to integrate the Post app into on-campus life to have a one-stop shop for all the things you may desire as a student. Our initial step was to add two tiles to the home page of the app. One tile is where you can access the virtual dining hall menu to see what is being prepared, and the other is an SGA tile to voice concerns and receive SGA updates. Stay tuned for additional updates as we have more ideas in the works and are always open to hearing suggestions.

Quick Hits

Advocated for updates to pathways around campus, designated an At-Large Senator to communicate with the dining hall on behalf of the students, and devised a strategy to promote athletics through marketing game times around campus.

Coming Up

We are planning to host the first inaugural SGA Homecoming Cornhole Tournament as well as a Trivia Night during late-night dinner in the dining hall. Join us and let’s have some fun!

Join the Conversation

Weekly SGA meetings are held in Macdermid room 116 on Wednesdays @ 1:45 p.m. Everyone is welcome and we encourage you to share thoughts, ideas, and concerns.  If you have gotten this far, I greatly appreciate you for reading this month’s SGA happenings.

Academic Success Tips!

Midterms for Main Campus and Finals for Online Term 2 are fast approaching.  We caught up with some of our faculty and associates from around the University to share their best tips and advice.  Try some of these out, and wishing you much success on your papers, exams, projects, and presentations!

Block off time to be effective in your study habits.  Don’t try to cram six hours of study time in.  Break it up in order to be successful.

Regina Martin Academic Specialist Main Campus

Don’t let academic fatigue set in.  Take breaks and then keep pushing and keep going strong.

Professor Jerrod Pass Program Chair Business Administration

Connect with classmates to go over notes and test each other’s knowledge! I did this during my undergrad program and it worked wonders for me!

Natalie Ortiz Academic Advisor

Check your email – you will be receiving one from your academic advisor with more information about advising and registration.  IF YOU HAVE A HOLD: that email will contain instructions on how to resolve the hold.  All holds must be resolved before you can register.  If you don’t have a hold, or once all holds are lifted, use the link in the email from your advisor to schedule a registration appointment.  Registration will be held in TORRANCE HALL – please arrive on time and excited to schedule next semeter’s courses.  Don’t delay – schedule your appointment today!  Contact the advising team at [email protected] with any questions you have or help you need.

Preparing for the Virtual Career Fair

Any career fair, including a virtual one, can be intimidating.  That’s why preparing is an important part of making a positive and lasting impression with all of the employers you meet with.  Here are some tips to help you prepare:

  1. Practice Your Elevator Pitch.  The employers you meet with want to meet you and learn more about you.  Prepare a short statement that includes your studies, background, and career goals and then practice sharing that statement.
  2. Maintain Eye Contact and Practice Active Listening.  Making eye contact during a virtual session can be challenging, and it’s important that you also acknowledge things that are being said using non-verbal cues such as smiling and/or nodding your head.
  3. Research Employers Attending.  A quick Google or LinkedIn search will give you some great background information for you to discuss during your sessions (and it really shows employers you are interested).

You can find even more tips by checking out this blog article.  Don’t forget – if you need any help preparing for the Virtual Career Fair on October 19, 2023 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, contact the team in the Center for Career and Professional Development at [email protected].
