Why Career Fair is for you

   If you ask any employer or graduate school recruiter, you will hear that one of the most effective tools in the job search process is NETWORKING. As a student, a convenient way for you to develop a networking strategy is to attend one of our seasonal career fairs.
   The Annual Fall Career Fair will be held on Wednesday, November 6th from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Seay Student Center. There will be approximately 30 booths, including representatives from graduate schools, corporations, non-profit organizations, government agencies, local businesses, and law enforcement.
   If you come dressed for success with a resume in-hand, you will be able to learn more about future opportunities, receive career advice, and pick up leads on job opportunities. Every student who walks through the door will receive a free gift bag, some containing special door prizes. Be sure to mark your calendar and attend the Annual Fall Career Fair on November 6th!

Mrs. Walker expresses thanks

   President Dr. Rick Niece received this note from Mrs. Pat Walker following the Walker Hall Dedication Ceremony on Oct. 4:
   Words cannot express the joy that I experienced on Friday! The atmosphere of love and caring, the people expressing excitement and delight was overwhelming.
   Please thank all of the staff and students for all they contributed to making the day perfect. The beautiful voices of the choir singing the U of O Alma Mater brought tears to my eyes --- happy tears.
   October 4, 2002, is certainly a day to remember. Thank you for the great opportunity to be a part of U of O.

   God Bless You.
   Love,
   Pat Walker
