Pathways to Service Info Session – Free lunch! 1/30

Posted on January 26, 2023 | Filed under Events

Gators! Especially JUNIORS and SENIORS – Career Education is back at it with more recruitment programming for the Spring semester. To kickstart, we’ve partnered with our dynamic colleagues in Community Engagement to present our annual Pathways to Service program which has two parts!

Part 1 will focus on preparing students to celebrate their service learning experiences through interactive and reflective discussion. This info session will serve as a vital opportunity for Gators to practice defining what service learning looks like at Allegheny and how they’ve leveraged the skills gleaned from such involvements to confidently articulate the transferable skills and transformative experiences that reflect the qualifications of a national service member.

If you’re interested in learning more about one of Allegheny’s top successful graduate outcomes, join us on Monday, January 30 from 12–1 in the Pelletier Collaboratory, for an info session on what to expect when exploring the Pathways to Service! The first 20 students to register and attend will get a boxed lunch – Register on Handshake here.

STAY TUNED FOR PART 2!

Apply to Join the Writing Consultant Staff

Posted on December 5, 2022 | Filed under Events

The Director of Writing seeks applications from students interested in joining the writing consultant staff. Consultants work with their peers on specific assignments as well as general writing concerns, and thus develop hands-on teaching experience. Most importantly, consultants help empower others to discover their potential as writers.

All majors, those who are still undeclared, and multilingual speakers and writers are all eligible to apply.

Required qualifications include an open mind, a willingness to learn, and an interest in helping others become stronger, more confident writers; a solid academic record, strong interpersonal skills, and a sense of humor are advantageous. Applicants must be able to commit to staffing at least one two-hour shift per week, meeting with a “matched” writer for at least one hour per week, and attending a weekly one-hour professional development meeting, held on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:30 pm. Some writing consultants also serve as grammar tutors.

To apply, please complete the application form and submit a brief personal statement along with a writing sample to Professor Hart at ahart@allegheny.edu. The deadline for applications is Monday, January 30, 2023.
