Associated Student Government is accepting applications from current UA students who are interested in becoming a student member of the University's Board of Trustees. Several years ago, the 117th session of the Ohio General Assembly added two non-voting student members to the Board of Trustees. The objective is to "allow for more student input on the governing bodies of the university."

Student Trustees serve on a volunteer basis. Though no compensation will be rendered, trustees may be reimbursed for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred while engaging in their official duties.

The term will be for two years — July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2007. Student Trustees will be expected to attend Board of Trustees meetings and actively participate in Board matters.

Applications are available online http://www.uakron.edu/studentlife. Click on "Cocurricular and All," click on "Leadership Awards," then click on "Student Board of Trustee Application." Applications are also available at The SOuRCe desk in Student Union, Room 130.

Deadline for Applications: Friday, March 11 at 4 p.m. Send them to Attn: Pamela Woodall, Student Union, Room 211.

Applicant requirements:
• must be currently enrolled in at least six credit hours;
• undergraduates, while a Trustee, must complete at least 12 credit hours per academic year;
• undergraduate and Law students must maintain a GPA of 2.0;
• graduate students must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA; and
• must be financially in good standing with the University.

Students who are interested in participating in a summer cooperative education/internship experience should plan on attending one of the upcoming Co-op/Internship orientations sponsored by the Center for Career Management.

  • Create a flexible working schedule, full-time or part-time.
  • Maintain your full-time student status while working.
  • Improve your classroom performance by applying theory to the world of work.
  • Build a strong network of contacts.
The orientation session, one hour in length, is designed to familiarize students with the CCM and to define the eligibility requirements and expectations for co-op/internship students. Orientations and co-op/internship experiences are ideally reserved for students who have already been admitted to their degree-granting colleges.

Sign-up is required and can be done in Simmons Hall 301, or by calling (330) 972-8655. Please visit this page for more information and for a list of orientation dates, times and locations.

  • has been dependent on public assistance or on the income of another family member but is no longer supported by that income, or
  • is receiving public assistance due to having dependent children in the home, especially where such assistance will soon be terminated, and
  • is unemployed or underemployed and is experiencing difficulty in obtaining or upgrading employment.
Qualifications: Candidates must have completed 30 undergraduate credit hours applicable toward graduation at an accredited institution of higher education by the end of the Fall 2004 semester, earned at least a 2.2 grade point average, and must be currently enrolled at The University of Akron. Previous recipients must reapply to have their award continued.

Applications for the VTDHS may be obtained at the UA Adult Focus office, Carroll Hall, Room 55, beginning in February. The application deadline is April 1, with the scholarship being awarded later that month.

The Muslim Students Association of The University of Akron cordially invites you to hear a lecture by Sheikh Yusuf Estes, a national Muslim chaplain and former Catholic priest who converted to Islam during the 1980s. Sheikh Estes is a Muslim activist and speaker who explains Islam in a way that crosses barriers and shows the commonalities between cultures.

His topic will be “Earthquakes, Tsunamis and The Last Days." Sheikh Estes lived through both the tsunami in Indonesia and the recent hurricane in Florida, and he will speak about the religious implications of natural disasters, and the effect such disasters have on peoples of all faiths.
This discourse on the eschatology of Islam will surely prove to be beneficial and intellectually stimulating for all who attend. The lecture will be at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 3 in the Student Union Theatre. Refreshments will be provided at 4:30 p.m. in the theater lobby. We look forward to seeing you there.
