2012-2013 CAS Peer Advisors - Signing Off!

With the end of another school year coming to a close, your CAS Peer Advisors would like to wish you all the best throughout the remainder of your college careers here at American University. We have so enjoyed working with all of you and know that you will all make your mark! But, before we leave, we wanted to share with you our summer plans and how we intend to stay involved in between semesters or post graduation for our 3 graduating seniors!

Well after I come to terms with the fact that I will be an AU graduate after May 11th, I plan on taking some time to relax and rejuvenate over the first part of the summer. I will be starting graduate school in September so a lot of my summer will be devoted to moving as well as job hunting! However, I do plan on continuing my work in Psychology by working with children with autism in a school environment which I am looking forward to. This way I can determine if this is something I find interesting and want to pursue later on in my educational career. I encourage all students to get involved with something over the summer that they find interesting, maybe it could be something you could continue once you come back to AU. Enjoy your summer and good luck with the rest of your college career - you are all awesome!

This summer I will be an AU graduate. It is a nerve-wrecking feeling, but I am excited about applying what I have learned at AU in the outside world. My plans for this summer are doing research and working. For the first half of the summer, I will work with one of my AU professors doing water quality research. I met her this semester, and her work seemed very interesting, so I asked her if I could assist her in her field research this summer. For the second half of the summer I will be working with Community Power Network, an organization dedicated to building and promoting locally based renewable energy projects and policies. I have been interning with them this semester, and I am very excited about working there this summer.

Hi All! As the year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know what I plan on doing during the lovely summer. I will be taking 2 summer courses (Organic Chemistry I&II) back in my home state, New Jersey. In addition, I will also be filling out applications so that I can hopefully intern in the fall. As the summer begins, I encourage you all to not only relax and catch up on some sleep, but to possibly volunteer within your community or prepare for next semester. It was truly a pleasure to be a 2012-2013 Peer Advisor and it is one experience I will never forget. Signing off…

Hi guys! I want to say how much I have enjoyed being a peer advisor this year! My summer is going to be really related to my academic life because I will be working at Sidwell Summer as their Director of Counselors and CAPs. I am so lucky to work with students in a fun summer environment and do something that relates to my degree in elementary education. If you can do something with your summer that you enjoy and relates or expands upon your academics, do it! I will also be teaching 4th grade next year at an independent school in Maryland. Please keep in touch and  have safe and wonderful summers!
