From Ann Rottersman

Director of Student Programs

picAdministering academically oriented student programs has been my focus for the past 27 years.  Whether it's collaborating with a student team on a new initiative such as this e-Newsletter, coordinating ASC funding opportunities that encourage you to explore experiences like study abroad, administering the Take Your Professor To Lunch Program to help you become better acquainted with our faculty, or supporting student organizations such as ASC Student Council, it is a pleasure providing services that enrich your enrollment.

Arts and Sciences Program Highlight

Neuroscience is a scientific field that investigates the organization, development, and function of the nervous system and its relationship to behavior, cognition, and disorders/disease. It combines diverse subjects such as psychology, biology, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and computer science. If you have a broad interest in many disciplines of science, neuroscience is a great field within which to develop those interests. Neuroscience majors also specialize in one of three subdisciplines of neuroscience: Molecular/Cellular, Systems/Behavioral, or Cognitive/Computational. A strong scientific education with a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience will prepare students for entry into many career fields and graduate/professional programs.  Meet with an advisor

Student Organization Highlight
The Meteorology Club provides students who are interested in the weather with a means for networking and socializing.  The club hosts weekly meetings, professional and social events.  Meetings include speakers from and visits to local TV stations and National Weather Service offices.  Club members learn about the meteorological field as a whole through their Annual Severe Weather Symposium where they network with professional meteorologists.  Email the club for more information or visit their website at Meteorology Club.  
Career Corner 

Thinking about applying to graduate or professional school?  Spring quarter is a good time to work on obtaining letters of recommendation.  Those who agree to provide a letter will have an easier time writing a summary of your relevant strengths if you follow the best practices described in the  Who Are Your Recommenders? tip sheet.

As the process often involves meeting with those you are seeking letters from, it's easier to arrange meetings while you are still on campus.  If you are requesting a recommendation from a faculty member, consider inviting your faculty recommender to lunch.  Free meal cards are available through the Take Your Professor To Lunch Program.

Careers In TV & Radio  - Employer Panel 

Radio & TV PanelIf you are interested in a career in the television or radio industry, plan to attend an employer panel.  There will be time for an informal Q&A session as well as one-on-one networking.
