Almost party time

Homecoming is a little more than a month away. Have you marked your calendars yet? Read more about the big plans for Sept. 19-25.

Around the House and on the road

One of the best parts about being on a college campus is being surrounded by the buzz of ideas and creativity and brainpower. To tap into that, the Office of Alumni Relations is starting a series of events this year that will bring some of that excitement to alumni. Read more about their efforts to bring faculty and alumni together with wine and cheese receptions “Around the House.”

Going ‘Into the Wild’

While the summer winds down, consider grabbing one more book for last beach trips or days at the pool. This year, incoming freshmen are reading “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer as part of the Freshmen Summer Reading Project. Alumni are encouraged to read the book and be a part of the conversation. Read more about the book and how you can participate.

It's hard to get away from it — the job market news is bleak. And the feature stories often headline a job seeker's hunt that's lasted six months, a year, even two years. “Oh, no,” you think. “Will that be MY story?” Let's take a look at how you can make the best of this job market and turn things around. Read more from Kathleen Martinek, former UNCG alumni career counselor.

Alumni Association Announcements & Upcoming Events

As if Homecoming and Around the House events weren't enough, you can also make plans to come to the annual Collage concert Sept. 10 or consider helping a student learn how to network during the Oct. 18 Schmooza Palooza. Learn about all these events and more.
