Meal Plan Change Form Online for Spring 2017

Any student who wants to change their meal plan for the Spring semester can request a change through the online form available at <https://earlham.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9nr7poEGJoGdlnD>. All requests must be submitted by Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017.


Giant Beaver Breakout at the Joseph Moore Museum

The Museum is burning. You have only 60 minutes to crack the codes, find the clues, and solve the puzzles to rescue the world’s most complete giant beaver skeleton before it becomes toast*. This isn't an average weekend activity; this is a fast-paced 60-minute challenge for people who like to solve mysteries. There are only four games running this December and each can accommodate up to eight people. When: 8:30 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday, Dec. 3. Cost is $8 for individuals or $7 per person for groups of three or more. Register on your own or with a group of friends online: http://tinyurl.com/z3cpjdy. If you are successful, you will earn a limited edition commemorative "I Saved the Giant Beaver" button, and your group's photo will be posted on our Joseph Moore Museum Facebook page.


Resident Assistant Applications Available

The Office of Residence Life is currently accepting applications for Resident Assistants. Individuals interested in 2017-2018 Academic Year positions, and those who will be off-campus during the Fall 2017 semester who are interested in the Spring 2018 positions are encouraged to apply during this time frame. For more information about the RA position or recruitment timeline, talk to your RA, CA, AD or attend an info session. The application deadline is 11:59 PM on Sunday, January 15th, 2017. A link to the online application as well as answers to FAQs about the RA position can be found at: <http://bit.ly/2fy3Fol>. Students studying abroad during the Spring 2017 semester that want a face-to-face interview prior to leaving for break should contact AD Erica Hoffman by noon December 5th at hoffmer@earlham.edu to arrange an interview time.


Resources for the End of the Semester

As the semester draws to a close, remember that there are a large number of resources designed specifically for students who are feeling overwhelmed with remaining projects and work. Get help with time management, personal care, and get support by logging into the Heart and visiting the "Student Success" box on the Campus Life tab. Use those resources as well as your faculty and friends for support. Stress is common at this time of year, but help is out there.


Student Employment Workshop for Supervisors: Posting Jobs

As this semester draws to a close, many of us are looking ahead to the spring -- and for some, that means posting open student employment positions. The CCCE will offer two workshops for on-campus supervisors on how to post jobs for students in Symplicity. The first workshop will be on Wednesday, December 7, at 10:00 a.m. in the CCCE Commons. The second session will be Friday, December 9, at 3:00 p.m. in the LBC 103 computer lab. We welcome you to bring your own device to either session in order to follow along with the presenter in posting your jobs. Faculty and staff are also invited to stop by the CCCE's open hours, every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. in the CCCE Commons.
