Students interested in graduate study in politics and/or economics are invited to speak with Mr. Albert Ramos to learn more about academic and fellowship opportunities at CGU. Over the past few years, many Johnnies have applied to or attended Claremont, including Alicia Elkins, Alisa Kaufman, Ian Dagg, and Paul Denby. 1 It is important for Career Services to speak with each senior in order to compile statistics about this year’s graduating class, which are used for recruiting, to reassure parents, and for accreditation. Also, Career Services enjoys hearing what you are planning for the future, and this is a chance for us to see if there is anything we can do to help as you are making plans to leave St. John’s. The exit interview is a short, painless process that should only take about ten minutes, so why not get it out of the way? Please call or come in to make an appointment. Career Services is located in the basement of Weigle Hall, Room 13. Our phone number is 984-6066. We look forward to seeing you! DER! REMIN Ariel Deadline!!
