3) Vol for CalDay

Vol for CalDay

On Saturday April 13th, K-2 grade students and their families from 50+ OUSD elementary schools will have the opportunity to attend Cal Day – UC Berkeley’s annual open house. Getting the chance to visit the UC Berkeley campus makes the idea of college real to students and reinforces the message to children that they are all capable of academic and career success. The Cal Day visit is part of the Kindergarten to College (K2C) program and the broader cradle to career initiative, the Oakland Promise, whose goal is ensuring that every child in Oakland graduates high school with the expectations, resources and skills to complete college and be successful in his or her career.

As a long-time Oakland resident, Cal alumnus, and a product of public schools, this event is very important to me and I’m writing to see if you’re available to volunteer. We need folks to help set up for the event and we especially need Tour Guides, volunteers who will accompany a group of students and their families on a walk around the campus. Interested in helping to make this event a smashing success? Fill out the volunteer sign-up form and an Oakland Promise team member will get back to you to confirm your role.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best,

6) ADVISING HOLD – COME IN

ADVISING HOLD – COME IN

A) Legal Studies Advising Hold: This is a hold that is put on all declared Legal Studies majors’ registration, unless you already came in this semester or you’re on the current degree list.
This is so that students are reminded to come in for advising at least once a semester.
Once you come into my office during my drop-in hours, I will lift the hold.
Abroad?  Please e-mail me.
Completely done with the major already?  Please e-mail me.
Already e-mailed me? I’ll get back to you before enrollments begin.
Otherwise, come in. B) 75 unit Undeclared Senior Hold:
Better get going on declaring!
This hold means you have close to 75 or more units and you are not yet declared.
Go to ‘About the Major’ then ‘Declaring the Major’ for instructions.
Bring in the completed and printed out Application and your essay.
Once you bring in those two things during my drop in hours, I can declare you and lift the hold.

Please do not leave your declaration paperwork in my mailbox. C) Advising Tips:
– Poke your head in the door when you get here so that I know you’re waiting and if I’m with someone, please wait out on the couch, not in the little hallway or xerox room.
– If you’re bringing in paperwork, have it in hand and already completed so that things move more quickly and smoothly.
– Have your SID ready to go so that I can look you up easily and quickly.
– This is a really busy time in my office, so let’s keep our meetings brief, because no one likes to wait in line. Thanks 😉

I’ve already seen 109 students out of about 200. Yay!
