Multicultural Student-Alumni Networking Night in NYC on 3/9

Multicultural students often face unique challenges, both on campus and in transitioning to “the real world.” We invite you to participate in our third annual Multicultural Student-Alumni Networking Night and seek advice from those who have walked this path before you: UR alums. This informal reception is not strictly career-focused. Rather, it’s about information, advice and community. Ask questions about alums’ personal and professional experiences, how their UR education shaped their decisions, and learn about life in the city that never sleeps. Come with friends, and come with questions!

We invite you to attend this event free of charge; hors d’oeuvres will be served, and there will be a cash bar for those who are of age.

Please register online at Register by Monday, March 2ndto receive 10 free professional business cards! Find this event on Facebook! Click here

Public Interest Research Group on campus next week!

Student PIRGS is on-campus next Thursday, and offering 3 different information sessions to fit your schedule!
Thursday March 5th 12 noon - Career and Internship Center, 4-200 Dewey Hall
Thursday March 5th 2pm - 107 Lattimore Hall, Rochester Center for Community Leadership
Thursday March 5th 5pm - Stackel Room, Wilson Commons 

Students founded PIRG (Public Interest Research Group) over 40 years ago, based upon the simple idea that America has more problems than we should tolerate, and more solutions than we use.

Today, on any college campus, you can find students who feel driven to take on problems outside the classroom, whether it's global warming, big money in politics, or hunger and homelessness.

As a PIRG Campus Organizer, your job is to recruit these students to get involved -- and to train them to be effective leaders who can run campaigns that make an impact in the community, in the state capitol, in Congress, at the White House, or wherever it will make a difference.

We're hiring Campus Organizers to work on 40 campuses across America.
