It’s that time of the year again! The fall term kicked off earlier this week and we are excited to see all of the new faces that just joined our community. Our new readers, please accept our warm welcome to the diverse community of GGU. We highly encourage you to stay social and leverage the diversity of our community by expanding your knowledge and network.
Make sure to say hi to us either in-person, via e-mail, or over the phone! We are always checking our e-mails–receiving feedback from you, reading your stories and thoughts make our days! So please, don’t hesitate to contact us. See below for our contact information.
Before we get into this week’s News & Updates, we would like to remind both our new and returning students that the voting for the SGA Presidency is still open! If you haven’t voted for this year’s SGA President yet, make sure to head over to this link and cast your vote by September 8th!
Speaking of SGA, we just got done featuring special messages by the current officers of the association over the course of five weeks. You can now read all of the featured messages on our From SGA to You Page.

Wellness Resources has launched their brand new initiative, Power of the Pause. This initiative aims to help students increase confidence and performance in the classroom and in their lives by learning and practicing breath and body tools that are proven to increase clarity and presence of mind in the moment.
To learn more about the initiative, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to register for a practice session that will assist you in managing the anxiety-producing experiences of brain blanking or freezing on the spot when called on in class to perform, you can click here.
Events to keep an eye on
Today is the second day of the Office of Career Planning’s special Drop-in Hours called Employer Resume Critiques. If you would like to get your resume reviewed by guest employers from Moss Adams, make sure to stop by the Business Library between 4:30 – 6:30 PM today.
The office is also going to be hosting their first Career Meetup of the term where the OCP team will be providing our students with an opportunity to get their LinkedIn profiles reviewed.
