Resume workshop on Nov 5th (Tues.
at 3:30) and Nov 20th (Weds at 12:00) By Wendy
*Anyone that wants to be involved in this workshop please give Wendy
a resume the day
before the workshop; if you can't, come anyway.
*We are mentoring freshman and sophomores who are majors or pending
majors along with
really recent majors (late transfers).
After you receive the phone numbers
of the people you will mentor from Wendy, you call
them and ask if they would like to be mentored. They do not know that
we will be calling
them or anything about having a person mentor them because we just decided
to do this. All
new majors will get a note from the department chair warning them of
this program. We will
have to explain what we are doing and ask if they would like to be involved.
*Here are some questions or topics
that we though would be helpful to talk about.
1) Meet with an advisor from
your major. If you have more than one major then you need to
see an advisor from each department. Even if it is a minor or a certificate
you should still see
an advisor from that department.
2) Make sure they understand
the university requirements (Wendy passed out a cheat-sheet
that I placed as an attachment). Tell them to keep a catalog of every
year that they declare
anything (major, minor or certificate), and the year they enter the
university (for BOK). You
can always move up a catalog year but you can't move back.
3) Declare as soon as you think
your interested in a major, minor or certificate, in case the
4) Talk about the classes they
will need to take. Also answer questions they may have about
certain classes or teacher. Share your experiences about the courses
outside the major as well
as inside the major.
5) Talk about being in clubs
and how they help you to talk and get to know more people in
6) Let them know about the internships
available and how all the students that do an
internship recommend them to future students because they help in getting
7) Tell them about summer school.
Explain that the classes may be shorter in the amount of
weeks but the workload for each week in higher then a regular semester
long class. If you take
an eight week summer school class the work load will be doubled per
day. If you take a four
week class then the workload is four times as much per day compared
to a normal semester
8) Tell them to save all of their
work from Communication courses for senior seminar!! (It will
save you from doing extra work)
*At the end of the meeting, people
were given students to mentor. Everyone else please
contact Wendy to get your students to mentor.
Next meeting-Nov 5th (Tues. at
Meeting ended 6:00 p.m.
