City Year Information Table

City Year helps students and schools succeed. Fueled by national service, City Year partners with public schools in 28 urban, high-need communities across the U.S. Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members provide research-based student, classroom and school-wide supports to help students stay in school and on track to graduate from high school, ready for college and career success. Stop by this information table to chat with representative Jason Bonilla about this year's open full-year and mid-year opportunities and how to apply for them.

The full-year Position would start around the second week of August until the end of school year, while the mid-year City Year AmeriCorps member position is a unique opportunity to serve with City Year starting between November and January until the remainder of the school year. City Year is looking for qualified individuals to join their team and lead the second half of the year powerfully.

*This workshop will fulfill the Internship Preparation Workshop requirement for the Amherst Select Internship Program.

WH Trading Information Session

WH Trading LLC is a proprietary derivatives trading firm that provides liquidity to futures and options markets, including Interest Rate, Foreign Exchange, Agricultural Commodity and Energy products. Its proprietary software is built in-house for flexibility and speed, giving the firm an edge in an environment where microseconds often make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful trade.

As a proprietary trading firm, revenue comes from trading profits generated on physical open outcry exchange floors in Chicago and electronic markets globally. WH Trading does not serve customers, and its risk capital is provided exclusively by the firm’s partners.

WH Trading believes in training its employees. Towards that end, several programs have been established – namely its 9-week summer internship program -- to ensure that new hires and interns receive the support they need to acquire basic skills and succeed in the trading industry. The firm’s leaders also place a strong emphasis on work-life balance, encouraging staff to pursue both with enthusiasm.

Want to learn more about WH Trading’s company culture, cutting-edge technologies, and training programs for interns and new hires? Attend this information session to hear from company representatives – including alum Rob Homchick ’14 – to hear more.

Re-presenting Nonotuck: The Landscape Paintings of Hitchcock and Gloman

until Oct 29 Frost Library, Mezzanine Gallery

Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.

The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
