Networking with Non-Profits & More

The Brown Center for Leadership and Service is hosting an event called Networking with Nonprofits and More.

The event will take place on Tuesday, September 17 in the Reitz Union. Check-in will occur outside of Reitz Meeting Room 2355.

This event will have up to 60 community partners who are ready to give students volunteer and/or internship opportunities. Each community partner will have their own round table with chairs so students can take their time talking one-on-one with them. The community partners will be representing a wide range of social justice causes, from youth development, health care, poverty and homelessness, environmental rights, and women’s empowerment.

If you have a student interested in coming to this event, here are a couple of links for them:

Getting in the Groove

As we make our way to or back to school, think about exploring:

  • Physical Exercise
    • Something as simple as taking a daily walk around campus could help you get back into the swing of things much quicker
  • Regular Sleep Schedule
    • The sooner you begin going to bed at a reasonable time and getting up earlier, the sooner you’ll stop singing the post-summer blues and be ready for your studies.
  • Healthy Eating
    • By making an effort to start eating healthier foods once you arrive/return, you’ll gradually find yourself feeling more alert and invested in your education.
  • Routines
    • By diving head first back into your old or new routine of attending classes and fulfilling those academic responsibilities on a regular basis, you can steadily gain all the motivation you might have lost over the summer.
  • Sense of Responsibility
    • Learning how to rely on yourself again can definitely help in reigniting your passion for living and learning.
  • Sense of Self-Gratitude
    • While getting a college education is immeasurable, there are points during the journey when you may feel overwhelmed by this path. Remember to take a moment to realize how much you truly have to be grateful for.
    • At the top of your list should be the fact you’re a college student who has the opportunity to follow your passion and pursue your dream career.
