Dear FACS Family,
It is with mixed emotions that I announce that I will no longer be serving as your Career Consultant. I have recently accepted a position as the Director of Career Education and Professional Development at Piedmont College. I will be starting this position on Nov. 2nd with my last official day at UGA being Oct. 30th.
Although I am very excited about this new opportunity, I am very sad to be leaving the Career Center and FACS. My experience working in FACS and the center has been a fantastic journey. It has been a sincere pleasure to know each of you. I hope that I will continue to connect with you all in the future. I know all of you will go on to be leaders and world changers, if you are not all ready. Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of your journey. I could not have had a better experience anywhere else!
Now some house keeping things:
Again, I will miss working with you and wish you all success in your futures!

We are recruiting students to participate in the Body Project, a 2-session, interactive, peer-led class, which aims to help students feel better about their bodies. The class encourages students to verbally challenge the “thin ideal” that is prevalent in our society and the media through interactive role plays and written exercises. Through challenging the “thin ideal,” this program has been shown to improve body image satisfaction. The program curriculum is targeted toward individuals who identify as women; however, men are welcome to participate as well.
In order to get the most out of the class, we ask that you only register if you are able to attend both 2-hour sessions. Please email Brittany Bingeman at email@example.com if you are interested in registering for the November classes, and please specify which class you would like to attend (Tuesday or Wednesday classes). Classes will be held at a central location on campus – likely MLC, Tate, or Journalism. Once registered, you will be notified of the exact location.
Tuesday Class (please be able to attend both sessions):
Wednesday Class (please be able to attend both sessions):
In order for students to get the most out of the classes, they will be limited to 8 participants each and students will be registered on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested, but classes are full, we will gladly keep your contact information and notify you with the spring schedule of classes.
Thank you for your interest!
