January 2017 UMSC Updates

Hello again!

Saturday, Jan. 28th, was the January UMSC meeting. It was hosted in Chicago, but primarily happened over Webex. We covered a variety of topics, both social and academic. I’ve included some bullet points below, but the full meeting minutes can be found here.

  • Drs. Osta and Thompson gave presentations on the new curriculum and answered questions regarding the new approach to advising and residency preparedness. They also discussed mentors and their role for future students.
  • UMSC still has a few open positions for committee reps, so if you are interested in learning more about the inner workings of the college or getting to know students from other campuses, email us for more information.
  • The new UMSC website has room for some more pictures of students and student activities, so if you have submissions, email Petra Majdak.
  • With all of the changes to the Rockford and Peoria campuses, the Office of Student Affairs is doing some great work to assure that students at all sites have access to excellent student services.
