ANNOUNCEMENTS

Graduate Research Showcase is Friday
Are you thinking about graduate school? Want to know what it's all about? Students from all areas of engineering will present their research in a poster session from 1-4 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 17, in the CH2M Hill Alumni Center. CBEE undergraduates are encouraged to drop in during this time, check out some of the poster presentations, and talk to grad students about their work. 

Opportunity for Study Abroad
A group of OSU students will travel to Uganda this summer to work with a humanitarian organization called TERREWODE, as part of a faculty-led study abroad program. Students who would like to learn more, particularly those interested in humanitarian engineering, are encouraged to attend the travel info session on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 6 p.m., in Austin Hall 216.

Information and Global Social Justice: Italy
Information and Global Social Justice: Italy is a three-credit course consisting of one week of class on-campus in Corvallis, then two weeks in Ferrara, Italy. The course focuses on the ways that we get information about social justice and human rights issues in other parts of the world, across language and cultural divides. This course can be used as an elective toward the Humanitarian Engineering minor and count for the experiential learning credit.

Career Tip for Week 6: What is Business Casual?
It's always important to make a good first impression with a potential employer. 
A thoughtful purchase of business casual attire is truly a worthwhile investment.
Here is a brief guide to business casual style:
For Men:
  • Wear a nice pair of dress pants or khakis (no jeans).
  • A button-down shirt, polo, or sweater.
  • Ties and blazers are nice, but not necessary.
  • Don't forget your feet! Think: dress shoes, not tennis shoes.
For Women:
  • Choose a blouse, sweater, or twinset. Avoid anything sleeveless, strapless or sequined
  • If you choose to wear pants, go for khakis, dress pants, or cords. Avoid cropped pants or shorts.
  • Dresses and skirts should be at or below the knee.
  • Opt for a modest closed-toe pump, loafer, or flat.
  • Any jewelry or accessories worn should be understated.
For more information on interview and business casual attire, please or visit the OSU Career Development Center.
