Hello, Out There! March 22nd, 2012
My apologies if you’ve stumbled across the CSSA blog in recent weeks! The second-year cohort is caught up in thesis and portfolio work, as well as the ever-so-entertaining job search. Spring term also sees the arrival of another wave of conference season, with classmates attending NACADA, NASPA, and various other conferences all across the country.
On my end of things, I’m happy to report that after over twenty applications to schools up and down the West Coast, I was hired on as an academic advisor at Clark College, a two-year institution in Vancouver, WA. I will be finishing up my courses as a part-time commuter student while starting my position several days after I defend my capstone portfolio. Things are cuh-razy ’round here, and that’s leaving out the fact that it snowed all day yesterday in Corvallis.
The program also just notified candidates for the CSSA Cohort 2012 of their admission. So far, I’ve been pretty pleased to hear who’s going to be a part of the first-year cohort in the fall. I have several friends who have already been doing outstanding work in the field, and I am looking forward to their growth in student affairs.
Now, since I have a portfolio to tend to, I must be going. However, if you are a prospective CSSA candidate, feel free to hop on over to ardithlaverne.com to check out how my portfolio is progressing. (Or I suppose if you’re a current student and thinking about the blog format for your portfolio, you can check it out, too!)
Remember, if you have any questions, send ‘em our way!
