Patricia Cardozo and Julia McMillan are the leadership team for the Center for Student Engagement and Activities. Read below to find out what’s coming up for student orgs.
Patricia: Hi, Everyone. Julia and I are the leadership team for CSEA. in April 2018, I was given the opportunity to lead this department, became chair of NUSO (National University Student Organization) Board of Directors, and created CSEA, so that student organizations would have centralized support. Julia came onboard to create the infrastructure with me, and we are really excited to work with student organizations!
Julia: Hi, All! It’s been a great experience to partner with Patricia in getting student organizations really up and running at NU. It’s such a privilege to get to work closely with students, staff, and faculty to help turn your ideas and goals into reality. We have a unique student body, and I appreciate that what works for other universities might not work for you. We’re here to find creative ways to make this part of your education just as valuable as what you learn inside the classroom.
Patricia: One of our main goals as a department is to enhance your educational experience at NU through supporting student organizations and creating intentional activities for you to join.
We hope to achieve this in many ways, one of which is through creating this blog. We invite everyone in student orgs to share your experiences in student leadership and going to school at NU by using this form.
Another way we want to support your experience is to organize activities you can attend, so that you feel part of the NU community.
This is why we are launching NU Engage. We invite all NU students to attend one night of this event! You will learn about clubs, participate in a club workshop or demo, meet club leadership, and win prizes.
It will be from 5-6 p.m., PDT, on Tuesday, September 29, Wednesday September 30, and Thursday, October 1.
On Wednesday, September 30, we will end at 5:30 to join Kim Mitchell’s Speaker Series talk. She’s NU’s amazing Senior VP of Military, Veteran’s and Gov’t Relations. If you have time, read her story.
We have a great line up of events for you in October. Some highlights are below:
On October 8, we have a special workshop from our own Matt Medeiros, Chief Compliance Officer, on Public Policy and Citizenry. (Registration link.)
We will also launch the blog, Parenting During COVID. On October 19, the blog contributors will have a student discussion on obstacles and success they have encountered while parenting, going to school, and working. We invite you to come and participate in the discussion. (Click here to register.)
There are more events scheduled that you can check out either on What’s NU this Month? or the official Activities Calendar. We will update this the first week of every month.
We’re also excited to launch the new look of the Center for Student Engagement and Activities website. Please email us your club photos, if you would like to be featured on this site or CSEA. (Use firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you want more info on clubs, please go to either CSEA links or our official NU CSEA page. Contact us anytime at email@example.com.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Patricia + Julia
