Haley Williams and Walker Fountain are in charge of the mentoring program for the LAH Class of 2017.
We are looking for a diverse group of people with different interests/campus activities to mentor a group of about 3-5 entering Freshmen.
It’ll be a great opportunity to help some freshmen get adjusted to college, so you should definitely sign up.
The application has a few questions, you don’t need to write an essay but definitely try to answer every question.
Thanks, and let us know if you have any questions!
Like to cycle?
Want to introduce first year LAHers to Austin?
We are planning a new LAH event to kick off the fall semester: an Orientation Bike Ride. To introduce our first year LAHers to Austin and to the LAH community, we would like to offer them a chance to take a bike ride around town right before classes start on Monday, August 26.
I need LAH volunteers to lead these bikes rides! Design a plan for a bike ride around Austin – any distance or level of difficulty is fine. We will need a mix of all different levels – some for experts and some for beginners.
Use google maps: http://maps.google.com/ to plan your route and calculate mileage. Send me your plan by Monday, May 20. Along with your route, please include 1- estimated ride time and 2 – departure time.
A few requirements:
1- All rides should depart from CLA/East Mall Area – you could go down Speedway or San Jacinto.
2- Departure time should be sometime in the morning, by 11 am
3- Return to CLA by 1 pm (for ice cream!)
Last year, the most popular rides centered around eating. You don’t have to go somewhere to eat, but remember that it will be hot, so it is better to plan a shorter, doable ride.
Want to lead a group on foot? Those proposals are welcome too!
If you need help coming up with ideas, just let me know and I can brainstorm with you.
Contact Linda Mayhew email@example.com with questions.
LAHSC is looking for LAHers to lead Rousseau Reading Groups in the Fall. These reading groups are primarily for the incoming class of freshmen and they will meet just once during the first few weeks of the Fall semester. We welcome a variety of book selections! So choose your favorite novel or something you think every freshmen should read and sign up! Anyone interested should fill out the application to be a group leader by Friday May 31st: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14r0zslqCYLke74jamnvcJ7WoBt9Qll9JDPNbQlE4Lpc/edit?usp=sharing
Please copy the application, fill it out, and email it to Kayla Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you!

The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, with graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. The Registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of Anthropology/Archaeology, Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Economics, Education, Engineering, English and Linguistics, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History, Journalism and Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.
Any undergraduate may go to http://www.cur.org/projects_and_services/registry/student_register/ to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student and records will be made available to bona fide Graduate Schools or research programs that contract with CUR for this service. Organizations or companies seeking the students’ information for other marketing purposes will not be granted access. Graduate School representatives may contact students to invite applications or visits to the campus and laboratory, or to share information about their research programs and financial support opportunities.
Graduate schools may provide a link to their websites, and may provide a short description of opportunities, such as research fields and fellowships. It will also be possible for institutions to place an ad on the database website if the content is related to the mission of CUR and the Undergraduate Registry.
For graduate schools that wish to review the student information, there is an access fee of $1,500 for the entire database, or $300 for one specific discipline. Again, there is no cost to you as a student to create a profile.
We hope that students who are currently in their junior year will register now, but anyone with undergraduate research experience may register at any time. You will be able to update your listing as appropriate, to include any summer research experience or information about Senior Theses and test scores. We also welcome submissions by students who are engaged in Masters’ Degree programs now but who plan on going on to a PhD program. Just fill out the information as if you are an undergraduate on the form including the date you intend to enter a PhD program and your date of completion of your undergraduate degree. Upload a link to your CV that contains complete information about your MS/MA degree activity (school, subject, thesis topic (if applicable), and advisor).
CUR believes that this service will be a great benefit for both students and graduate schools by narrowing the search for the right match. So if you are interested in graduate school, please take a moment to register now. Be sure to include a statement of your research interests, as this will be important for making the match.
Please feel free to contact me, should you have any questions.
