Wednesday Night Walk-ins!

18 Sep

Rob Lowe might literally be there.

Liz is doing Aaron Sorkin-style advising every Wednesday night. Meet with her from 5-7 pm in the Townhouse on Foggy Bottom, walk, talk, and get your questions answered before the elevator doors close.

No appointment necessary, just show up with your questions in hand, and meet with fictional President of the United States Josiah Bartlett-I mean, Liz.

If you need an appointment during regular daytime hours, make sure to make an appointment.

Sign Up: Freshmen Small Groups

11 Sep

It’s time for Freshmen small group meetings! Freshmen will meet with Catherine and Liz to go over the pressing matters of these hectic times.

The topics:

  • Goals Statement;
  • StrengthsFinder: StrengthsFinder is an online assessment that identifies some of your strongest talent themes;
  • Four Year Plan: Finally, we’ll discuss the process for completing your four-year plan.

Your mission…. accept it:

  • Complete your one-page goals statement and bring a hard copy to September small group (that’s the short, one page, reflective statement on your personal goals for college.)
  • You will receive individual access codes this week to complete the StrengthsFinder online assessment. Check your email and as soon as you get your code,  complete the assessment by Sunday, September 23
  • Bring a hard copy of your “Signature Themes Report” to our meeting.

You can register online for the most convenient time.

Small Groups will meet the week of September 24th.  There are just enough sections to cover everyone, so make sure to sign up right now if you have a tricky schedule.  Specific days and times are available at the online registration page.  Sign up now!

All small group meetings this round are being held in Ames 101Q (the conference room in the UHP Suite at the MVC)

SPA in Action at the HAW

5 Sep

UHP Freshman at last Monday’s HAW with some of our SPA

Happy second week of classes from your Student Peer Advisors (SPA)! We hope that your classes are fascinating, your stomachs are full of free food, and most importantly – that you’ve taken our advice and dropped that Calc II class you don’t actually need.

We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet the UHP freshman and our fall Origins classes at last Monday’s HAW. When prompted with free food, we provide a plethora of GW wisdom including information and personal experience on study abroad, undergraduate research, community service, and more!  Jokes, we’ll actually share all of these things without food, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.

Should you need any help or guidance throughout your first few weeks of class, please do not hesitate to reach out to us! Contact the SPA paired with your Origins class, come to our SPA Office Hours in the UHP Townhouse on Wednesdays from 5-7pm, or email the SPA account at uhpspa@gwu.edu and have our leadership team find a Student Peer Advisor with the knowledge you need!  We look forward to seeing you and the rest of our UHP brethren soon.

Oh, and in case you forgot: bowties are cool!
