After several three cheers for the past weekend’s events and efforts, Ad Hockers talked about August. It’s going to be a jumpin’ place next month.
A fuller description of August is being pulled together for a following News and Notes coming shortly. For today, we are focusing your attention on two opportunities related to the return of students to Bethany College in August:
1. Bethany College is organizing a free job fair for local employers to meet potential part-time student workers. The Bethany College Fall Job Fair will be Monday, Aug. 20, from 3 to 5 p.m. in Lindquist Hall in Wallerstedt Learning Center on campus.
For clarity: This job fair brings together area employers offering currently available or soon-available part-time jobs with interested and qualified student candidates. For a business promotion opportunity, pls see #2 below.
Reserve a place at Bethany’s Fall Job Fair by filling out a short form no later than noon Monday, Aug. 13. Here's the link: https://tinyurl.com/Fall2018JobFairEmployers
Questions? Please contact Caitlyn Rethorst, BC’s assistant dean of student development, at 227-3380 ext. 8274 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. If your organization would like to provide an internship offering experience based education for students who could earn college credit, Caitlyn also is the Bethany contact person. it is an underused but fairly flexible program that can be rewarding for both students and businesses. We'll talk about this more at Ad Hoc soon.
2. For Lindsborg businesses and organizations that would like to promote themselves to new Bethany students, Bethany College has organized this new event: the 2018 Bethany College Swede Days Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 3 to 5 p.m. This event replaces the day-long business expo that had been held on Sundays for new students and their parents.
The scavenger hunt was expressly designed to bring students and their parents/guardians (and their questions about Lindsborg) face-to-face with us in downtown Lindsborg. Students will be asked to “scavenge” photographs on their phones and collect tokens or stickers from each scavenger hunt participant on the prepared list.
Okay, folks, this is the Lindsborg community's opportunity to create a celebration and warm atmosphere for these new students and their corresponding adults. Coupons! Drawings! Small gifts! Snacks and refreshments! Take-away information! Signs of welcome! Please plan now how you can represent -- and roll out the red carpet to reinforce the college-community connection.
BC organizers want to keep this event walkable for students and parents; thus, we will need to work with friends and neighbors to set up in the downtown area if someone's business or organization is not actually situated downtown. Reach out to those who might like to share space.
To participate in the scavenger hunt, please register no later than Friday, Aug. 3. Send the following information to BC’s orientation director Ashtyn Snider at email@example.com. If questions, call her at 227-3380, ext. 8230. Gotta be registered to be on the scavenger hunt, folks.
