Hard to believe, but spring commencement is fast approaching. We'll honor our graduates at the annual FACS Convocation on May 8 at 3 p.m. at The Classic Center. In honor of this event, we'll be featuring several of our outstanding FACS graduates over the next two weeks on our Facebook page. Check it out. Congratulations, all!
We hope you are already following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! We'd love to be included in some of your posts. If you do post about your time at FACS, please include the hashtag #ugafacs. You can then see all Twitter, Instagram, and even Flickr posts with the #ugafacs hashtag on Tagboard.
Graduates, please use the hashtags #facs15 and #ugafacs in your graduation photos, so we can see them, too!
Graduates, if you have not already done so, please complete the Career Outcomes Survey. You have no doubt received several reminders from the SSAC and your advisors! Thank you for providing this very valuable information – not just to us, but to your fellow students!
Returning students, have you looked at the Career Outcome Survey results? They are compiled at the end of every academic year. If you want to know:
Look no further! You can view results at the university level, by college, and even by major. The Career Center plans to add the ability to compare colleges and majors by employment rate and salary in the future.
We think you will be pleased to see how FACS graduates are faring after graduation. For instance, did you know, in 2013-14, the percentage of graduates still seeking employment six months after graduation from FACS was lower than the overall percentage for the University? In fact, it was lower than the percentage for most colleges. We are proud to offer programs that so thoroughly prepare you to enter the workforce or graduate school and support you in becoming a competitive candidate for whatever it is you want to do after graduation!
Speaking of jobs…

Interns will be encouraged, in addition to general program duties, to take an active role in the Summer Academy and use their unique skills, interests, and backgrounds to benefit Leadership participants.
Interns will be responsible for greeting students and parents, facilitating the morning “Leadership Inspiration” session, and working with instructors and the Program Coordinator to ensure that morning program sessions run smoothly. Interns will keep the Program Coordinator abreast of any issues, absences, etc., that occur while opening the daily Academy Sessions. Also, Interns will be responsible for distributing lunch and the “After Lunch Power Booster” session and working with instructors and the Academy Coordinator to ensure that afternoon program sessions run smoothly. They are responsible for the evening dismissal of students to their parents, who will sign them out, and securing the program facility.

With the guidance of the Program Coordinator, Interns will be encouraged to develop and/or facilitate other program sessions that meet the objectives of the Academy and skills/interests of the Intern. Also, Interns may be assigned administrative tasks relating to Summer Academy operations, following up with scheduled guests, field trips, special activities, etc. Interns are expected to be “generalists” who may function in a variety of capacities as needed to ensure the successful execution of the Summer Academy.
Interns may be either a current undergraduate or graduate student with a strong interest and skill-set in youth leadership development, program execution, and civic engagement. Interns will be a role model, thus must be of good character and maintain an appropriate disposition at all times.

8. Denim Day
UGA's Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) office and peer educators will host Denim Day, an awareness day that protests common and damaging myths about sexual assault, on Wednesday, April 29. Denim Day was inspired in 1998 after an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. Participants should wear jeans and stop by the MLC, in front of Jittery Joe’s, anytime between 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., to get a free sticker to show there is no excuse for sexual violence. The event will also include dialogue, activities, resources, and giveaways.
