Need ideas for what to do after you graduate? Teach for America, Americorps and Peacecorps are on campus tonight in an effort to give you some options after your graduation. Take advantage of a job that allows you to truly help people. They are meeting in Social Sciences room 206 from 6-7:30 p.m. Representatives from all three groups will be here, trying to get you a job. Americorps is an opportunity similar to the Civilian Conservation Corps of post-WWII where you work to help improve the natural environment. The Peacecorps offers a program where you work abroad with developing nations. Teach for America takes graduates and places them in under-resourced areas of the U.S. as teachers to help the underprivileged. Show up if you have any inkling of doing this in the future, because you never know -ุone of these programs could lead to the time of your life.
