Students in the Criminal Justice program gave presentations on their internship experiences during the senior showcase.  Internship sites included Baltimore County Police Department, several local law firms, and the Department of Juvenile Justice.  Many thanks to the site supervisors who worked with the interns all semester and came to the event to support our students!

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio for the annual Midwest Victorian Studies Association Conference.  This year's theme was "Victorian Tastes," and presentations addressed topics such as tea drinking, adulterated food, women composers, transatlantic aesthetic influences, and the scent of poetry.  Participants were also treated to performances by the talented Oberlin Conservatory music students.  It was an excellent opportunity to connect with trends in the discipline and reconnect with some old friends!

Faculty, friends, and family gathered this week to celebrate the 2017 Spring graduates from the Human Services program.  Students shared their experiences at their field placement sites, which included Irvine Nature Center, Maryland Special Olympics, and Baltimore County Public Schools, and discussed their plans for after graduation.  We are so proud of your accomplishments!

Please join us for the final conversation of the year.  Friday May 5, 4:30, SoLVE Center, OMN.  All are welcome!

Should colleges help students get jobs or should we help students find their passion?  More important, are these two endeavors mutually exclusive?  A recent article in the Washington Post points out that an increasing number of adults aged 44-70 are searching for an "encore career." "They have not found fulfillment in their chosen jobs and want to find something that provides greater meaning and impact," writes Angel B. Perez of Trinity College, CT.  If a student's education is too focused on one career she/he may be unable to have the flexibility and nimbleness required by the contemporary market.  Indeed, Perez notes that today's undergraduates may have between 10 and 14 jobs by the time they are 38 years old.  Finding a passion while in college will help prepare students for a lifetime of learning and fulfilling work.
