National Christmas Tree w/ Prof. Mark Ralkowski

3 Dec

UHPers living in West Hall, join Prof. Mark Ralkowski for a small dinner and a trip to the national Christmas tree (and oversized menorah, and little train village) this Friday!

The plan is to meet at the UHP townhouse at 5:30, eat a meal that Prof. Ralkowski will provide, and then walk to the tree.

Just email Prof. Ralkowski at mralkow@gwu.edu no later than Friday morning so that there’ll be sure to be enough food for you.

In anticipation, you might want to watch this video on repeat.  Seeing a tree is pretty exciting.  (Watch out for one and a half swear words.)

Make Your 4-Year Plan Appointment, Now! [Freshmen]

This is actually how most students figure out their four year plan. NBD.

Freshmen, if you haven’t scheduled your meeting with Catherine or Liz to talk about your Four Year Plan (PDF), do it now! 

Technically, you’ve got until Friday, October 19th to complete this meeting.  But, Liz and Catherine’s schedules book up fast, so grab an appointment now! They’re just really, really popular, okay?!

If you’re feeling stumped on your Four Year Plan, don’t despair.  It’s just an exercise to help you see how to complete your five majors, full year abroad, 8 minors, and 7 internships in four years.  No pressure.

The best thing to do is to make your appointment right now, and just make sure you’ve got your plan prepared in time for it!
