Environmental Tip of the Week
Go Green in the classroom too! You can use refillable binders instead of notebooks, use recycled paper, take notes on both sides of a page, ask your professor if you can turn in assignments with print on both sides, and unless it’s really needed, don’t use automatic handicap doors.
It's time to create or update your resume! You'll need a revised or new resume to start applying for jobs and internships. Remember to use action words and detail your skills and accomplishments. Have a friend, professor, Academic Advisor, and Career Counselor review your resume to help you tailor it to the opportunities you're most interested in.

THEME WEEK: sexual health
What do you choose? Many people choose a lifestyle of abstinence in order to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases and infections, unplanned pregnancy, and emotional distress. For those who engage in sexual activity, there are many preventive measures including barrier and hormonal birth control which is the responsibility of the man and the woman. No matter your level of sexual activity: know your partner, be comfortable talking about these topics, and schedule routine exams to maintain good physical and emotional health.
