Opening of Autumn Quarter
Welcome back students, staff and faculty! The Opening of Autumn Quarter Schedule is available on the department website under Resources > Current Students, under "Courses, Schedules and Curriculum" at the top of the page.
These events are also listed on the Department Internal Calendar.
Please also join us in welcoming Susan Heimburger to the administrative staff team. Susan is serving as the graduate program coordinator and as a general office assistant. Susan has a Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Affairs and has had jobs working in the Student Union here at OSU, and in admissions in institutions prior to coming here. She began working
here August 11th.
Details of all the staff's jobs will come later, so you know who to go to for what. Looking forward to a great year. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Student Docent Program
The Wexner Center exhibits work created by artists from around the globe. We welcome visitors from a range of backgrounds and communities. In order to serve a diverse audience, we need a diverse team. We are now taking applications for our 2009-2010 class of Student Docents. Contemporary art challenges viewers to face and explore potentially provocative topics. Docents lead meaningful gallery discussions and push visitors to experience art from a range of perspectives. They guide the public in exploring issues of identity, race, sexuality, politics, and more. An academic background in the arts isn’t necessary—but a love for the arts and people is. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 614-292-6493 to RSVP.
¿Qué Pasa, OSU? is a quarterly, on-campus magazine that features interests and issues that affect and concern the Hispanic community at Ohio State. Recently we added a new section to our magazine called: Creative Works by Latinos at Ohio State. This section features art on several mediums created by Hispanic/ Latino students, faculty and staff. We would like to see an increased participation this upcoming academic year. For an example of past works featured, click here.

Nonprofit internships are an excellent way for students to build their resumes. Nonprofit organizations are very flexible with students’ time and typically don’t ask for more than 10-15 hours per week. These internships would be great for students looking to graduate at the end of AU Quarter, or any student interested in the nonprofit/social services sector.
There are additional opportunities, and internship descriptions, posted on our FutureLink program. If a student is not registered for that program they can do so in our office, located in 48 Townshend Hall. See attached download for list of opportunities.
