Back to work!

Spring Break 2007 has come and gone, so now it's time to get back to work!

We've just come to the end of Spring Quarter Week 1 and everyone seems to be back in the groove of school. The nice weather has certianly been a positive factor as 'the oval' (no relation to the famous OSU area) has been packed with students kickin' back between classes enjoying laughs and stories from Spring Break and their first days back in the classroom.

Back to work ... and then off to work.

For many, this is the home stretch, as they head toward graduation at the end of the quarter. Some will transition to Bachelor programs at other UC Colleges, NKU or Wilmigton College (Eastgate), while others will head into the workforce.

This is a great time of the year to head to UC Clermont's Career Services: - Career Services can assist with resume prep, interview prep, as well hooking you up with employers wanting to hire soon-to-be graduates. Give Ann Appleton, Director of Career Services, a call at 513.732.5277 or write her at

Now get to work!
