Pizza with the Profs

This past Monday, Pickard Hall hosted our second Pizza with the Profs of the semester.The featured professors Kokou Gadedji (Accounting) and Lucie Kadjo (Ag Business) where extremely engaging and fun to interact with. They both shared their cultural experiences both coming from Africa. We appreciate them setting time from their busy schedules to speak with students.

Do you like free pizza? Of course! Who doesn’t like free pizza? The last two dates for Pizza with the Profs are Tuesday, April 4th and Wednesday, April 26th.

Duncan Dinner

Shout out to the McCoop Staff for putting on a successful event. The hot dogs and malts were delicious. Thank you to the bunch of Pickard residents who went. There was a lot of great laughs! The money raised will go to help children in need.

Career Fair Bulletin Board

I hope everyone had a chance to check out the career fair. Hopefully before you went you checked out this bulletin board for Dos and Don’ts. Another thing you can do is get help from the ACAC department in Ullsvik Hall. The ACAC can help with resumes, cover letters, and other professional advice.
