Table manners matter:

You could find yourself doing business in a variety of situations: at a restaurant over a formal dinner, a casual buffet, or a cocktail reception. This entertaining program for graduating seniors reviews what is expected of you in these settings, including: negotiating the table setting, recognizing when to sit, and which direction to pass the food.
There is a waiting list for this event, but you’re welcome to add your name here.
Registered students should pick up their tickets at the Senior Send-off the day of the event (see above). There is no charge for this event.

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Sierra Club, the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.
Last summer our staff helped ban off-shore drilling to protect our coasts, repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and increase food safety standards to make school lunches safer- all while building valuable leadership skills.
Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.
As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.
Information sessions will be held at 10am, 2pm, and 4pm in Wilder 220 on April 8, 9, 10th.
In addition, there will be an Info Table in Wilder basement on April 8th and 9th, and in the Science Center Atrium on April 10th.
