PROUD OF YOUR FLY PROGRAMS! BE PROUD, YOU ARE DOING GREAT WORK!

I continue to be impressed with the FLY programs this month. The Personality & Purpose group did a phenomenal job with their program entitled, "The game of CE&D" Eleven students showed up, they were engaged the entire time and everyone took something from the program. Today, two students stopped by Molly's office and told her that they landed a JUNE-O interview! Great job to all those involved on this committee and their FLY Chair, Maria!!

Gina Babinec did a terrific job chairing the Juicy Contradiction FLY Committee. On 2/17 21 individuals gathered together to discuss the social culture at Denison and how gender influences the social culture. The conversation was enlightening. Tom Snee, Leah Edwards, and Eric Evans helped guide the conversation. Najee Rollins offered great questions and challenged the first year students to think more deeply about these critical issues. Thanks to the entire committee for their great work and engagement around this tough topic!

Take sometime to reflect on YOUR goals, objectives and future plans!

As student staff leaders, you can neglect your personal goals and often put your needs aside. Be sure to find the time to focus on YOU and reflect on how your position within the department supplements your plans for the future. Molly highly suggests that you read this article: http://www.redbord.com/how-to-get-an-outstanding-first-job-as-a-modern-liberal-arts-graduate
