Do you speak Spanish, or want to?  Want to travel?  Check out your options!  Come to the SPANISH OPEN HOUSE & STUDY ABROAD MINI-FAIR (with free pizza) Wednesday, Oct. 2 @ 5:30 PM in 301 Herter Hall.

The Center for Multicultural Advancement & Student Success (CMASS) invites you to attend our Undergraduate/Graduate Mixer for Fall 2013.  This is a great opportunity to meet current UMass Graduate Students and find out what Graduate School is all about.  The event will be held on Wednesday, October 2nd from 6:00pm - 8:00pm in 201 Wilder Hall.

Isenberg Career Day 2013 will be on Thursday, October 3, from 11:00am - 4:00pm in the Campus Center Auditorium.  The Isenberg School of Management Career Day is the kick-off event for the fall recruiting season. Held annually in late September/early October, approximately 100 companies and 1700 undergraduates attend.  Students may view a list of registered companies here.  Business casual attire is required.  Read our earlier post about how to prepare for a Career Fair and be sure to bring copies of your resume with you.  Don't have a resume yet?  Make an appointment with Career Services!  

OPEN HOUSE at CMASS!  The Center for Multicultural Advancement & Student Success (CMASS) invites you to attend an Open House on Thursday, October 3rd, from 4-6pm.  Come to Wilder Hall (between Morrill and the new science building) to learn more about what CMASS does, meet some people, and enjoy some refreshments.  EVERYONE is welcome!

Don't forget that Thursday, October 17 is the last day to drop courses with a “W” or change a course to Pass/Fail.  A “W” is nearly always preferable to an “F.”  Taking a class Pass/Fail will not fulfill a GenEd, major, minor, GlobalEd, School/College or certificate requirement.  If you're not sure how this will affect your timeline for graduation or want advice on options, make an appointment to meet with an advisor.  In making your decision, bear in mind that you need to carry 12 credits to be considered full-time for financial aid and health insurance purposes.  

We still have a few planners left!  If you have friends who have yet to pick one up and need to get organized, send them to 613 Goodell.  They are also available at the Academic Advising Link, so stop by to talk to our Peer Advisors.
