Today's Events
Winter Coat Drive

Now until January 15
The sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma and the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega are collaborating on a Winter Coat Drive during Intersession 2016! The drive will run from now until January 15, at which time the coats will be donated to the Washington City Mission.

If you have any gently worn coats to spare and will be on campus during Intersession, please drop them off at one of the collection locations. Bins will be placed in each Greek house as well as the Rossin Information Desk, the Office of Student Life, and the Hub. It would mean a lot to those less fortunate!

Pie Day Returns to U. Grant Miller Library

Friday, January 22
Come to the Library on Friday, Jan. 22, and help celebrate our 8th annual Pie Day! Pie will be available from 11 am to 4 pm (while supplies last), and hungry patrons will have the option to dine in at the Library, or take a slice of pie with them. If you'd like your pie "to go," please bring a clean container and help the Library go green by using fewer resources. All take-out patrons who bring a container will be entered in a drawing for a homemade birthday pie. If you're a baker extraordinaire and would like to share a pie with the W&J community, please contact Amy Welch at X6048 or awelch@washjeff.edu by Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Student Employment Opportunities!

Student Ambassadors & Student Fellows for Fall 2016
The Office of Admission seeks articulate, responsible, and
energetic students to represent the College by interacting with prospective students and families, providing campus tours, interviewing prospective students, assisting with Admission events, and performing office tasks.
Start Date:  Fall Semester 2016 (training occurs in Spring semester 2016)
Applications are due by 5:00 PM Friday, January 15th.
Selected applicants invited to interview will be contacted the following week to set up interviews!
Student Ambassadors
Job Description:  Student Ambassadors work with the Office of Admission staff to ensure successful and informative campus tours, events, open houses and overnight programs for visitors.  The nature of the work will require some weekend and evening commitments, especially during the spring semester.  Ambassadors will assist with a variety of office responsibilities including, but not limited to: campus visit and event coordination, office communication, application processing, etc.
A successful candidate must be able to work independently with little direction and have strong organizational skills. Students must also possess outstanding interpersonal skills and enjoy communicating with a variety of people. In addition, Student Ambassadors must be able to adapt to the changing needs of the office environment.
Student Fellows
Job Description:  We are seeking current freshmen, sophomores and juniors who are articulate, responsible, and show great leadership within the College community. Student Fellows are a prestigious and select group of students who assist our office in interviewing prospective students who visit the College.  Not only do interviews with a Student Fellow give prospective students a chance to meet with a person who can give them first-hand information about the W&J experience, but it will give our Student Fellows the opportunity to assist in recruiting potentially successful students to our College.  Student Fellows will primarily conduct interviews on Saturdays.
Students do not have to be work study eligible to apply.
However, this position may be used for work study hours if eligible.
Questions/Concerns?  Please contact Katelyn Glaser at kglaser@washjeff.edu.

Volunteer Opportunities
Reusable Food Containers Available!

Help reduce the use of disposable products. Last academic year W&J consumed approximately 238,000 styrofoam "to go" containers and paper boats, which were used for only minutes before heading to the landfill. The Sustainability Committee and Parkhurst are proud to offer the opportunity to use reusable "To Go" containers.  How it works: Take the container to the cashier at G&Ts or the Commons. You hand the container to the cashier, she/he will then hand you a clean container in which to place your food. You enjoy your delicious food and then rinse out the container. Next time you head to G&Ts or the Commons for food, simply bring your used container with you. Place your order with the cashier, hand him/her your used container, and the cashier will hand you a clean container in which to place your food. To get your first container or if you have any questions or concerns please e-mail jmarch@washjeff.edu.
