Presenting your Professional Self

Alana Hentges, associate director of career and employment services

Looking for a job or internship? Make sure to present your best professional self.

Investigating Opportunities for Research and Fellowships: What's Out There, and How Do I Get It?

Julie Nelson Christoph, associate professor, English and director of the center for writing, learning, and teaching
Sharon Chambers-Gordon, director of fellowships
Eric Scharrer, professor, chemistry

This session will offer some snapshots of opportunities available to Puget Sound students who want to take academic engagement to another level through doing summer research on campus, across the nation, or abroad; through receiving scholarships for undergraduate study at Puget Sound; or through engaging in post-graduate research, travel, or teaching. Students on our campus are eligible to apply for a wide array of fellowships and research opportunities (such as Goldwater and Truman Fellowships, National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates, and Puget Sound Summer Research Grants). The best time to start thinking about these opportunities is now, and this session will present information on resources available on campus to help students as they prepare for and embark on the application process.


No Major? No Problem.

Landon Wade, director of academic advising

In this session, students will use their academic interests and strengths to discuss major selection and what that selection means. Join Academic Advising to take stress out of the decision-making process.
