All campus departments that have been granted a Work Study allocation for the 2007-2008 academic year are invited to participate in the 3rd Annual Work Study Job Fair on Aug. 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Student Union Building.
Participating Work Study departments at the event also have a unique chance to market and advertise themselves to Work Study students on campus. Department representatives who participate will also receive a complimentary lunch prior to the start of the fair.
Students who have been awarded Work Study will meet with various departments looking to interview and hire students. The Payroll Office staff will attend the fair as well to collect tax forms and direct deposit forms. Paperwork can be submitted to the Work Study Coordinator, in order to reduce the time it takes for students to get on the payroll.
Department interested in participating in the fair can contact Suzanne O'Driscoll (Student Activities and Union Services) at x3012 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations. All other questions can be directed to Cindy Harkins (Financial Aid) at x3247 or email@example.com.
The Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Student Activities will host the event.
For the third consecutive year, the Office of Student Activities will participate in the national day of community service, Make a Difference Day, on Oct. 27.
Last year, the college had more than 470 participants at 22 project sites throughout the community.
There are two planning meetings scheduled for the Make A Difference Day committee: July 30 at 1 p.m. and Aug. 24 at 1 p.m. Both meetings will be held in the Student Union Building, Room 409.
The Student Activities Office is also looking for local sites to host students, staff and community members participating in the 17th annual Make A Difference Day.
Local organizations provide project materials and some direction and SUNY New Paltz students and staff provide labor. Examples of projects could include light landscaping, painting murals, food collections and clean-up projects.
Local organizations interested in participating should contact Beth King (Career Services Center) at x3278 or kingb@newpaltz. edu. For general Make A Difference Day questions or suggestions, contact Suzanne O'Driscoll (Student Activities and Union Services) at x3025 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
