Have you studied abroad? Are you interested in studying abroad?
There is a new LinkedIn group for students who are planning to study abroad and any study abroad “alumni.” This includes students who have volunteered, interned, worked, studied, or conducted research abroad. There are already over 215 members, and UGA alums living abroad have joined in and posted about their experiences!
It is a closed group. The Office of International Education will verify any students who did study abroad and, for those interested in study abroad, they will verify you are a current UGA student and/or attended an Education Abroad 101 session. To join, visit UGA Study Abroad Alumni.
The Department of Foods and Nutrition is offering the course FDNS 2050, Introduction to Sports Nutrition and Wellness, in Fall 2016. It will meet Tuesday/Thursday, 2:00-3:15 p.m., in 430 Chemistry. The course will be taught by Dr. Jamie Cooper. It is 3 credit hours, has no pre-requisites, and is open to all students. The CRN is 30119.
The course is an introduction to healthy eating, active living, and human performance, with an emphasis on sport nutrition and wellness across the lifespan. Topics will include dietary supplementations for athletes, which foods and fluids are best for optimal athletic performance and daily health, and nutrition practices for building muscle and losing body fat.
Hello, my name is Marcella and I'm looking for female personal care attendants to help me live independently on campus. I am a third year UGA student and I am diagnosed with Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, upper respiratory distress and use a power wheelchair.
The daily tasks include:
Experience is not mandatory but helpful. Pay is $10 an hour.
This job is a serious commitment and you must be able to work some weekends, which include some football games. The shifts I have are Monday through Friday, 7 am to 12 pm, 12 pm to 5 pm, 5 pm to 10 pm and overnight, which is 10 pm to 7 am the next day. On Saturday and Sunday, the shifts are 7 am to 2 pm, 2 pm to 9 pm and overnight, which is 9 pm to 7 am the next day.
Interested? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Luke Christie, and I am a graduate student in UGA’s Department of Communication Studies. I have a form of muscular dystrophy, use a power wheelchair, and require assistance with most personal tasks. Thus, I am seeking several students—undergraduate or graduate, male or female—to work regular shifts as Personal Care Assistants (PCAs).
The flyers below contain position and compensation information for two different PCA roles, along with my contact information and instructions for persons wishing to inquire. I encourage interested persons to look at and consider both positions; they may express interest in one or both. I intend to hire several workers of each type.
In addition to offering compensation in the form of patient care/service-learning hours and, in some cases, a modest daily stipend (see flyers for particulars), I am more than happy to be a resource to any student wishing to learn from my life and experience. What better way for students with interests in biology and medicine (particularly neurology), pharmacology (I take interesting medications), physical or occupational therapy, genetics (mine is a genetic disorder), gerontology (while I am not elderly, caring for me is much like caring for an elderly person), social work and public health policy (I have received social services my entire life and have lots to say about “the system”), and/or special education than to work with someone who has personal experience with all of these areas?
I hope to have several folks lined up by the second week of August.
