Hello and Happy May!

 

We have officially made it past May 1 – WooHoo! Thank you for your collaboration! Not surprisingly, this month I have three updates for you.

 

 

Dawg Bytes Highlights:

 
  • Final Transcripts. We want to give you a friendly reminder that we will need final transcripts once they’re available. We’ll start communicating with students about this requirement soon, but it’s helpful for you to know too.
  • UGA as a Score Recipient. Please remind your students to list UGA as a score recipient on their AP, SAT, and ACT exams. This will get your students in our system so we can communicate with them and invite them to events and activities on campus.
  • Visit Campus. Please encourage your students who are beginning their college search or are now right in the weeds of it to visit campus. They can make a reservation for an information session and tour online at visit.uga.edu.

That covers it for this month (and this year)! We'll start back up again in August. I hope you have a great end of the semester and great summer too.  GO DAWGS!

Hartwick's website

The Academic Minute logo

Hartwick Faculty Get National Press Spotlight

Five members of Hartwick’s faculty recently told the world about their research on The Academic Minute, a national radio show featuring researchers from colleges and universities around the world. Over the course of a week, these faculty members presented one-minute "lectures" on hot topics in their fields:

  • “The Curious Case of Correcting Corruption” by Dr. Ryan Ceresola
  • "Public Opinion and Presidential Candidate Spouses” by Dr. Laurel Elder
  • “On the Power of Play” by Dr. Diane M. Paige
  • “The Cult of the New” by Dr. Stephanie Rocknak, and
  • “How to Mend a Broken Heart” byDr. Stan Sessions

For more on the show and to hear each archived segment, go to The Academic Minute's website.

Theatre Arts Student Portrays Victim at SANE Training

Hartwick Helps Train Area Sexual Assault Nurses

Hartwick's nursing department recently hosted a day-long "bootcamp” for area nurses preparing for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) certification.

Bassett Healthcare Network conducted the session, while Hartwick staff assisted and videotaped the proceedings.

Also, under the guidance of Associate Professor & Chair of the Theatre Arts Department Malissa Kano-White, several Hartwick theatre arts students even portrayed "patients" in role-playing scenarios. Both male and female students helped recreate a number of distinct situations the nurses may well encounter.

The session will ultimately help fill a dire need for SANE-certified healthcare practitioners statewide.

For more photos from the "bootcamp," check out our Facebook post

Men's lacrosse

Spring Athletics Season Heating Up

The men’s lacrosse squad showed true Hawks Spirit recently, winning a thrilling, come-from-behind triple-overtime contest against SUNY-Farmingdale.

Meanwhile, Hailey Pooler ’19 broke the women’s lacrosse program record for assists during a match against Crosstown rival SUNY-Oneonta. Her 87th career assist broke a school record that stood for 20 seasons.

Off the field, Hartwick Athletics has also been performing well. Women’s Field Hockey earneda National Field Hockey Coaches Association of America (NFHCA) Division III National Academic Team Award for the 2018 season. The award is presented to field hockey teams achieving a grade-point average of more than 3.0 during the fall semester of the 2018-2019 academic year.

In our last edition, Oyaron Hill was preparing for the women’s basketball team’s appearance in the NCAA Division III tournament. The Hawks jumped out to an early lead in their first round matchup, but ultimately fell to Emmanuel College of Boston, 69-65.

The tough loss was tempered shortly thereafter with the news Caitlin Corbett ’19 was named to the D3hoops.com All-East Second Team.

Dear Colleague:

 

Thank you for all you do to support the young people of Arizona.

Would you please publicize the dates for these events now to your highest-potential sophomores and juniors and urge them to attend?

 

Some sessions have an attendance cap, so encourage your students to register early. The schedule for our information sessions and registration details are on our website.
