CHaSS Alumni Lunch Series

CHaSS hosts alumni lunch series events that get current USU students connected with alumni.  This is a great opportunity to see how a degree in the liberal arts (including philosophy) can be used after college in various careers.  Plus you get an opportunity to network.  Bonus – free food!

The next event will feature Selma Mlikota (Liberal Arts major, ’15).  Selma Mlikota has an unusual job. She helps create great employee experiences for a company that’s in the employee experience business.  Come learn about that but, more importantly, how she framed and deployed her liberal arts education into a cool career!

Friday September 13, 12:15-1:30 in LIB 154.

Interested in being an Undergraduate Teaching Fellow?

Philosophy usually employs a handful of UTFs each term, usually to help with Intro, Social Ethics, or Ethics. If you’ve had any of these classes, and have done well, and would like to serve as a UTF, please send me a note (charlie.huenemann@usu.edu). In addition to the joy of helping other students learn interesting stuff, you are awarded a small stipend.
