Hello Post Eagle Families,
Happy Fall! I hope all is well and that you are staying safe and healthy as we continue to navigate through this COVID-19 pandemic. We are thrilled to be back on campus and are happy to report that we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our Post community, and that the plan we have in place seems to be working quite well. The latest on the Coronavirus can be found here: https://post.edu/coronavirus
I also hope that you will enjoy reading our Parent and Family Newsletter. It is intended to provide more clear and concise communication of shared stories, exciting opportunities and experiences taking place on campus, and important dates and deadlines. Following are some updates from around campus.
Earlier this month, the Provost wrote to all University students on the importance of academic integrity. The message is an important one and we want you to have the opportunity to read it.
Our Center for Academic Success is ready to help students with a paper or an assignment. Meet Michael Adesida, director of the Center. In the coming weeks, the Center will run Cram Sessions to assist students to prepare for final exams.
Registration for the Spring 2022 Main Campus semester has wrapped up. During the month, your student met with their Academic Advisor to select classes for next semester. Please talk with your student about what classes they are taking next semester.
We are celebrating our Eagles who made the President’s List, Dean’s List and Provost’s List in the Summer and Spring of 2021. We are proud of our students’ dedication and hard work.
If you did not know, Post University has a School of Continuing Education. Take a moment to read about Dawn C Sherman, Ed.D., the Dean of the School. The focus in the School of Continuing Education is to help all learners be ‘workforce ready.’ Please watch for additional programs and credentials as the School expands its offerings.
The subject of mental health and campus stress is not a new subject. It’s been in the news a lot. At Post, our Counseling Center staff continues to meet the students where they are to help make Post mental health resources more accessible. The team champions a holistic approach to wellness. Beyond individual meetings with students, the Center has You@Post, a free confidential digital tool that many students find extremely helpful not only in self-care but in setting personal goals for themselves. There is also the Student Online Assistance Resource (SOAR) that provides 24/7 access to several important services, including counseling, financial resources, legal support, and personal convenience services. This service, at no extra charge, is confidential and available to family members living within the same household as a Post student.
We are equally proud to share that in November, Hartford Business Journal will honor Lisa Antel, the Director of Counseling at Post University, as a Healthcare Hero.
THE CENTER FOR CAREER AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
For students who are debating a major or wondering what is the right career path for them, our Center for Career and Professional Development has a wonderful free tool called Awato that students can use. Awato, along with our Center for Career and Professional Development, can help students determine what education programs and careers fit their interests.
Meet Christina Billings, director of the Center for Career and Professional Development.
