Campus event promotion and fundraising reminders
Just gentle reminders that if your class, student group or team is promoting an on-campus event with posters or flyers, please use the various bulletin boards provided for general campus announcements. Please do not stick flyers on doors, and wallpapered/painted wall areas. This will help keep our spaces looking clean and allow for room for a flyer for the next great event. In addition, if your group wants to promote the event off campus, please work with Julie Hadding in the PR office to make sure your poster meets brand standards. Fundraising reminder - all campus fundraising events need to be approved.
>>> Applications  Contact Robin Bowlus if you have questions.

Dr. Karen A. Longman, program director and professor of doctoral higher education at Azusa (Calif.) Pacific University, will be Bluffton University’s commencement speaker this year.

Mock Interviews
The Center for Career and Vocation is now scheduling for their next mock interview night on Tuesday, Feb. 24 from 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. in Marbeck Commons. Students are able to sign up for up to three interviews. Please consider taking advantage of this event. Our mock interviewers give the kind of valuable feedback that is hard to find in other contexts. You can register online through your College Central account.

Beavers all: Overcoming evil with nonviolence
Several Bluffton students heard stories of nonviolence from an unlikely felon and explored peacemaking methods to build a bridge between faiths at this year’s Intercollegiate Peace Fellowship Conference. >>>full story

It’s Discovery Grant Time again!
Discovery Grants provide an opportunity for first or second year students to create a 4 – 6 week mini-internship or other experience that would allow you to test out areas of vocational interest. Two $1,500 grants are available each summer. The deadline for 2015 grant applications is March 20, 2015. All required forms (and additional information) can be accessed in the Center for Career & Vocation or online.

Career Ready. Purpose Led.
Plan ahead for large career & internship fairs coming up this spring that require pre-registration:

  • April 10: Career and Internship Fair (in Toledo)
  • April 15: Education Expo for Teacher Candidates (here at Bluffton)


Kit Guides 2015
We are seeking enthusiastic, fun, friendly, caring and knowledgeable Bluffton students to assist with the many different aspects of our summer orientation/registration program.  These students will have significant interaction with our new students and their families. Applications are available at the Marbeck Center Information Desk.
