4. Love Facebook?  Love the UHC?
The UHC is looking for an enthusiastic student to organize and execute an Honors orientation Facebook page this summer.  One current UHC student is needed to serve as administrator of the page as well as post content, correspond with new students and post on the discussion board through Facebook.  This is a chance to meet some of the incoming students and help them out during their transition to college.  The time commitment is minimal, just 30 hours over the entire summer and all interactions will be online. You can earn Honors credit or some cash for the experience.  If you are interested and will be returning to the UHC in the Fall, please contact Dean Arp at dan.arp@oregonstate.edu <mailto:dan.arp@oregonstate.edu> for more information.

OSU is planning a Cross-Cultural Mentoring Program designed to connect students with faculty/staff from across campus, to create a support network, and to provide a cross-cultural educational experience.  We are looking to recruit students, faculty and staff who are willing to participate in this wonderful opportunity. Participation would include attending a one-day training in September, a kick-off dinner during the first week of classes and meeting regularly with a mentor/mentee during the course of the 2010-2011 academic year.  If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee, please fill out an application and submit it by Wednesday, June 30, 2010. Applications can be picked up and dropped off at the ISS office (A150 Kerr) or the SHS Health Promotion Office (Room 310 of Student Health Services).

The Women Studies Program is excited to announce that this year's International Feminist Film Festival will feature an original documentary film by Portland-area film-producer, Brooks Nelson.  This year's festival features the showing of Switch: A Community in Transition. This documentary film explores the impact of a gender transition not on the individual going through the transition, but on the surrounding community of family, friends, co-workers and others. A trailer for the film can be viewed at: http://www.boxxo.org/.  The event, free of charge, will take place in Memorial Union 206/Asian Pacific Room on Thursday, June 23rd beginning at 6:30pm with light snacks. Actual screening of the film will begin at 7pm, with a discussion to follow. Event co-sponsors include the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, Office of Student Affairs. Department of Philosophy, and Women’s Center.
