Stressed about how to balance classwork, extracurriculars, friendships, and sleep this semester? Don’t worry! Stop by the Mead for a two-part workshop series that will offer strategies for gaining control over how you use your time.
Part I. Where does the time go? | Wednesday, Sept. 5, 6:30–8 p.m.
All students are invited for an introduction to time management and a sneak peek at the Mead’s exhibition Timing Is Everything before it opens to the public. Pizza will be served!
Part II. Planning Through Procrastination | Wednesday, Sept. 26, 6:30–8 p.m.
All students are invited to a hands-on planning workshop. Now that the semester is underway, join us to plan your individual weekly schedule and semester as a whole. Please bring any planner you use (online or paper), along with the syllabi for your courses. The first twenty students to arrive will be given a free planner and pizza will be served!
These workshops will be facilitated by Senior Associate Dean of Students Charri Boykin-East, Senior Writing Associate Kristen Brookes, and the Mead’s education team. This program is designed for Five College students and offered in collaboration with the Being Human in STEM Initiative, Student Affairs, and the Writing Center.
The finance industry can seem very complex, especially when distinguishing between investment banks. This is your opportunity to hear from a panel of industry experts who will be discussing the advantages of choosing a non-bulge bracket investment bank/investment advisory firm. These alumni, who represent middle market and boutique investment banks, will be talking about the pros and cons of working at smaller firms and how your career can be directly impacted. These same firms will be on campus this fall for internship and/or full-time recruiting. Following the panel, the employers will be available for networking and individual questions. Come hear about each firm and determine if pursuing investment banking at a middle market or boutique firm is right for you.
