The term is almost over, and we want to celebrate with you to get you through the final push. We’re going to make bouncy balls, play games and color, and eat rad snacks!
Do yourself a favor and come hang out with us in the Science Success Center (Kidder 109). While you’re here talk to the Peer Advisors. They’re doing drop-in resume and cover letter help, can give you tips on registering for next term’s classes, or how to get involved in research.
Advisors: Of course YOU’RE INVITED TOO! Should you have time Thursday, come on down to the SSC and hang out with us!
We have an opening on our Alternative Spring Break trip to Yakima, WA, and I would greatly appreciate your help sharing this with students so we can try to fill this spot! This trip is open to all undergraduate and graduate students who pay student fees to the Corvallis campus.
On this trip, students will learn about the human face and cost of land acquisition, colonization, and immigration by exploring the influx and interplay of different cultural groups in the Yakima valley. They will work with the Yakima Nation, Latinx migrant workers, and the City of Yakima to develop a deeper understanding of the area’s historical relationship to the land and to explore implications for the present and future of different cultural groups in the region. Alternative Break trips are designed to help students develop increased global consciousness, empathy, leadership skills, and engaged citizenship.
Here is more information for students, including a short blurb that is great for Facebook posts. I’ve also attached a couple of pictures from past trips that you’re welcome to use.
Trip: Tangled Roots: History, Land Use & Cultural Engagement in Yakima, WA
