LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES!

BECOME AN OU STAR!

Calling all potential student leaders! We are looking for students who want excitement! Who want to make a difference! Who want to be leaders and representatives of Oakland University! Discover how to become a student leader on campus and get paid for a job that allows you to make a difference. Learn how to become a CMI Peer Mentor, Orientation Group Leader (OGL), Resident Assistant, or Nightwatch staff member. All interested students must attend an information session. The next information session is Monday, December 1 from 5-6 p.m. in Vandenberg Cafeteria. There will be more OU Star information sessions in January!


PREPARE FOR CORPORATE AND COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP!

National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) is hosting their last event of the semester. They have invited InRoads, a non-profit organization that finds talented minorities for corporations looking to recruit minorities, to campus to provide information before their recruitment process begins in December. This is especially beneficial to CMI Students because they recruit minorities from all different majors. 
They are seeking students that have two or more years left in school and would benefit from this opportunity. The event is Tuesday, November 25, 2008 in 125 OC at 12:00 pm.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT
The CMI knows that the semester goes by quickly and we did not want to let it end without recognizing the achievements and involvements of our students!!! Here are just a couple of examples:

Katy Hojnacki is a freshman pursuing a double major in English and Studio Art. We want to recognize her for her outstanding performance in her Japanese course and her dedication to NaNoWriMo! NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month which is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30. For information visit http://www.nanowrimo.org/

Desiree Pettiford is a freshman pursuing a degree in Engineering. We want to give her a shout out for getting back in touch with her passion for running by becoming a member of the Oakland University Women's Track Team!
