The Art of the Cover Letter

Cover letters are an important part of the internship application process; they turn the dry facts of your resume into an engaging story that captures recruiters attention. This workshop will teach you the elements of a great cover letter and will give you the chance to practice crafting your own. This is a hands on workshop. Attendees are asked to bring sample internship or job descriptions along with their laptops.

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

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).

The MURAL Project: In CISE!

The MURAL Project: In CISE!

Come contribute to our collaborative mural! This project began with the idea of using art to heal from sexual violence. From there, it evolved into a collaborative mural between all the resource centers that puts focus on the theme of healing from any kind of trauma or any type of injustice. Feel free to come with an item you would like to glue on or supplies, or use our supplies. We will have paint, markers, paint pens, hot glue guns (for gluing on items) and collage supplies. By contributing to this mural, you are by no means obligated to explain your contribution, or share anything about your experience that is private.
