Encourage your Students to Develop Healthy Habits during Exam Week–and Cougar Countdown Can Help!

Your students are likely starting their ‘countdown mode’: 9 days of classes…..10 days until Exam Week begins….23 days until grades are posted….

and 11 Days Until Cougar Countdown!

Cougar Countdown http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/index.php , a collaborative effort of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Auxiliary Services, and community partners,  offers a schedule of FREE events and activities on campus during Exam Week featuring:

  • Yoga and Zumba classes
  • Late Night and Early Morning Snack Breaks
  • Puppy (and adult dog!) Petting on Rivers Green
  • Ice Cream Sundae Party
  • Early Morning Coffee Breaks
  • Mini-Massages
  • Late Night Pizza on Rivers Green
  • And more!

 

Cougar Countdown is provided to all students to encourage them to participate in healthy activities that will help them reenergize and regroup for more effective study time.  A new offering this semester is expanded peer tutoring hours, provided by the Center for Student Learning, which will give 6 additional hours of tutoring assistance in the following subject areas: Spanish, Math, Accounting, Biology, Geology, and Chemistry. Details can be found at http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/study-locations/index.php .

 

From the Cougar Countdown planning team and our many supporters and partners on campus, please encourage your students  to study smart this Exam Week by participating in one or more of our many activities and events!  Don’t buy into the hype—tell them to skip the cramming and ban the all-nighters—and instead follow a balanced schedule of study-rest-recreate for a better Exam Week!

 

For a full schedule of events, please see the Cougar Countdown website http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/index.php  , like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/CofCCountdown , and follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/cofccountdown

Tutoring and Other Academic Support Up To the Finish Line….

As we turn the last corner and head into the straightaway of the semester, students may feel excited, scared, relieved, overwhelmed, or anxious as they sprint toward the Finish Line ahead! (sorry about the metaphor; we are still in ‘Cooper River Bridge Run’ mode after last’s weekend’s race!) They turn to their coaches— YOU! —with their concerns about ending the race strong; thus we see lots of questions on the listserv relative to types of academic help and support, and how to access it. I thought it might be helpful to recap tutoring and other academic support services available to students, AND share new information regarding how long these services will be accessible:

 TUTORING AND OTHER ACADEMIC SUPPORT:

  • Walk-In Tutoring Labs (no appt necessary):  Spanish, Math, Writing, Speaking, Sciences, Accounting
  • Individual Tutoring (connect with tutors at CSL front desk): Comp Science, Economics, Finance, Psychology, Music Theory, Other Foreign Languages, Philosophy Writing, History
  • Supplemental Instruction (SI): Biology, Chemistry, Logic
  • Private Tutoring: selected courses; check website http://csl.cofc.edu/labs/private-tutoring/index.php
  • Study Skills and Time Management: (make appt at CSL front desk)
  • Professors and Classmates: (check professor’s office hours or make appt; form study groups with classmates before Exam Week)

 

AVAILABILITY FOR REMAINDER OF SEMESTER:

 

  • Walk-In Tutoring Labs: Last Day of Classes, Friday, 4/25—Labs close at noon.
  • Individual Tutoring: Last Day of Classes, Friday, 4/25NOTE: Tutors will continue to accept new appts until Friday, 4/25 if they still have availability in their schedules
  • Supplemental Instruction (SI): See SI leader for scheduled sessions
  • Private Tutoring  http://csl.cofc.edu/labs/private-tutoring/index.php :  Tutors’ availability will vary.
  • Study Skills and Time Management: appts always accepted; see CSL front desk to schedule.
  • Professors and Classmates: Make appts, form study groups this week—professors and students tend to be less available when classes end.

The most efficient way for your students to access academic help and support is for them to come to the CSL, so please send them our way! We will do our best to connect them with the training tools they need to end the semester strong!

Summer Opportunities in the College of Charleston’s Office of Sustainability

We are currently accepting applications for our summer internship program until Friday, April 18th at 5pm. We are accepting applications from undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates. Please email your cover letter and resume (with two references) to hollyat@cofc.edu.

Please share with any students you think may be interested!

Created in the fall of 2011, the Office of Sustainability at the College of Charleston is comprised of undergraduate and graduate interns working under the direction of full time office staff.

The purpose and vision of this Office is:

To generate and apply knowledge through holistic praxis to create sustainable solutions that transform society by rethinking, redesigning and restoring integrated systems.

The Office of Sustainability is looking for motivated and dedicated students for internships during the 2014 summer semester. Both paid and unpaid internships are available for undergraduate and graduate students. Recent graduates will also be considered.

 

As our projects are student driven initiatives, applicants must be self-motivated, organized, and have a passion for sustainability. A portion of the internship will include intern personal development, as well as professionalism and leadership training. While some of the positions may be working on pre-¬determined projects, the Office of Sustainability promotes creativity and collaboration and any new initiative will be considered for implementation.

 

Responsibilities:

This position requires working with campus associates as well as other community members to further building and strengthening our relationship with the community of Charleston.

 

Summer Semester:

The Office of Sustainability is offering full and part time positions during the summer semester, with opportunities for both paid and unpaid internships, depending upon knowledge and experience. Full time internships require 30 hours per week. Part time commitments are flexible and will range from 10-20 hours each week. The internship will last nine weeks beginning June 3rd and ending August 1st. Specific projects for which interns are needed include Sustainable Greek (working with the Greek Life program), Orientation and New Student Outreach, Residence Life Programming, Campus Bike Share, Urban Garden, Waste, and Energy. Additional project ideas will be considered, as well.

 

Qualifications:

The Office of Sustainability is looking for self¬-starting individuals with an ability to brainstorm creative solutions to current challenges facing our community. Potential candidates should be organized, hardworking, and detail oriented with the desire to be a change agent in society. Additionally, applicants should desire to further the vision of the Office of Sustainability by implementing projects and ideas that will create a more sustainable CofC. Experience and knowledge in the field of sustainability is a plus, but not a prerequisite for this position. Preference will be given to those applicants demonstrating skills in leading experiments and project management.

 

Learning Objectives: Learning objectives for this internship including utilizing brainstorming, creativity, and collaboration to develop sustainable solutions; communicating with both peers and members of the campus and Charleston communities; developing/honing time management and multi-¬-tasking skills; as well as building knowledge and understanding for not only the concept of sustainability, but the implementation of initiatives on campus. Additionally, students will be developing their leadership skills and ability to effectively lead a team. Professional development will also be an important aspect of the internship.

 

To Apply: Please send a resume with two professional references (contact information only, letters of recommendation are not required) as well as a letter of intent describing why you want to work for the Office, how your skills and experiences make you a good candidate for the position and what you wish to work on during your time with us to hollyat@cofc.edu.

The deadline for application submission is Friday, April 18th at 5pm EST.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask, and please visit our internship page on our Office website for more information:http://sustainability.cofc.edu/internships/index.php.

Information on current initiatives can be found at: http://sustainability.cofc.edu/initiatives/index.php.  All the internship postings are at sustainability.cofc.edu.

VITA Volunteers in Tax Assistance

Again this year, the Beta Alpha Psi Accounting majors and Accounting Graduate students will be in the lobby of the Beatty Center (on Liberty Street across the street from the main cafeteria) assisting in the preparation of Federal and State income tax returns for low-to-moderate income taxpayers.  There is no cost for this service.  We will be able to e-file your return or you can request a paper filing copy.  We will provide you with a copy of the return as filed.

 

To be eligible for us to assist, a taxpayer must have taxable gross income of less than $58,000 and be a US citizen, resident alien, or in the US on a student visa.  If you are a student, please confirm with your parents whether or not you are a dependent on their return.  We must have this information in order to file your return.

 

In addition, there is a new program from the IRS, Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) which allows the taxpayer to access the program and file his/her own return without assistance.  If you wish to come during that time, a computer will be made available for your use to file your own return, if that is your preference.  In the case of a taxpayer with income greater than $58,000, the IRS will charge you for the use of this program.

 

We will be in the Beatty Center Lobby from 10 until 2 on the following FOUR Saturdays:

 

April 12th

 

We look forward to serving our constituents.  You must bring a picture ID, your social security card, the social security card for all of your dependents, all W-2’s or other tax information forms (1099, 1098, etc.), and a voided copy of a check or a deposit slip if you choose direct deposit in the case of a tax refund.

Students for Social Innovation (SSI)

Want to be an agent of change for the world??

SSI focuses on various issues facing our society (hunger, homelessness, water, health, etc.). Once we pick a topic for the year, we spend the first semester researching the issue and the second semester creating an implementing a plan of action to better the topic. SSI is unique in that we urge students to use their own unique skills and talents to combat issues like homelessness, etc. We also educate ourselves and each other about the various topics through readings and many hands-on experiences!

 

We are currently focusing on the issue of homelessness in the Charleston area (causes, solutions, etc.). We are working with Crisis Ministries, Memminger, and Meeting Street Academy to host our annual Community Health Fair in April. Some volunteers for the fair will be clients from Crisis Ministries, as we believe this will increase their self-efficacy, sense of connectedness with the community, and have many other positive effects on them. We always measure the effectiveness of our projects (via surveys, measurements, etc.).

 

We currently meet Sundays from 3-4pm in MYBNK 320
