Spring is in the air…

By: David Ross

Well, it was a few days ago. How quickly things change. 60 degrees, sunshine one day…40 degrees and rain the next. At least the snow is gone? For now? For good?

Career Services was open this past week as many students left town for Spring Break. It’s amazing how a change of pace can re-energize you for the rest of the semester. As Spring Break comes to a close (and I’m sure it has gone by too quickly for many people), now is the time to prepare and make plans as you finish up the semester.

If you have a chance, take some time to stop and reflect on where you are with your plans for the summer or after graduation for seniors. Is there anything you need to do or focus on over the next two months? Before things get busy again with academics, devising your plan of action may help keep you focused. Now may also be a time to reassess your goals and priorities and determine if you need to make any adjustments. Do you need to tweak your resumes or cover letters? Or perhaps expand your job or internship search? Whatever your situation may be, try to make the most of any free time you have now.

Enjoy the last few days of Spring Break and we will see you back on campus next week.

Spring is here! (Almost)
