1. Upcoming Events?

We've noticed that after the month of April 2014 that we don't have very many future web calendar items.  If your planning has progressed to the point of having the title, date, time and place for upcoming events (even far into the future), we'd love to get those up online for you to help with promotion and the scheduling of other events.  Our office is frequently asked whether any conflicting events are planned on X date.  Please send updates to clas@gvsu.edu .

 

2. Student Opportunity - From Dr. Maria Cimitile, Asst. Vice President for Academic Affairs (attachment)
 

This is a great opportunity for our students to work at the Hispanic Center. Please distribute the attached information to any interested students you may know of.  Please note too they are seeking bilingual students. It is another opportunity for us to strengthen our relationship with the Center. Thanks very much.

 

3. Late Course Withdrawal Process reminder

As the deadline for course withdrawal is past, please be advised that students seeking a late withdrawal must complete this request process through the Student Academic Success Center (SASC) in STU. Please direct students to address the request to Mike Messner in their written materials.
