Mandatory CCPD Meeting Update (Winter COMM 395 Only)

The information session for 2:30pm today, January 31, will resume as planned. The Center for Career and Professional Development asks that students only attend if they can safely make it to campus. Their final information session will be tomorrow, February 1, at 1:30pm. Both information sessions will occur in Pratt Hall 305.

Dr. Lenze strongly urges his students who still need to attend the session to do so TOMORROW! Please do not go today! It is too dangerous to be outside.

 

Thank you,

Katie

Winter COMM 395 Announcement

Hi, all –

 

To accommodate for today’s information session cancellation, we will be offering two more information sessions this week:

 

 

I will post a D2L announcement for students, but I would also ask if you could please relay this information to your respective classes to ensure they are aware of the additions. If students are unable to attend the sessions, I am still planning to upload the recorded presentation to D2L once the sessions have concluded, so they will have the opportunity to hear the same information.

 

Thank you!
Katie

The Washington Center Reception

Where are you going to complete your internship?

There are approximately 120 Communications Media students currently looking for internships. Of those, around 20 have either received an offer, confirmed the internship, or are far along in the process. That leaves 100.

Of those 100 who do not have an internship, only 10 of you signed up to go to a meeting with free pizza to discuss an internship in a major U.S. city with an internationally recognized internship site that includes housing. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the State of Pennsylvania will pay your tuition and the overall cost is the same as most other internships.

There is no obligation if you attend this reception. Given how great the offer is, what is stopping you from attending? I will leave the RSVP open till 4 pm today and hope that those of you who did not plan on attending will reconsider.
