UWGB has many resources students don’t know about, or take advantage of like Career Services, Campus Cupboard, Counseling and Health Center, Disability Services, The Learning Center, and Librarians!
Career Services offers many resources for students, from the Career Closet to the popular Online Job Board.
If you have an interview or networking event coming up, stop by the Career Closet and get some professional attire. The closet is located in Student Services Suite 1600. Upon presenting your student ID, students can choose up to five items per semester. New and gently used items available including: suits, dress pants, dress shirts and blouses, suit coats and blazers, dresses, ties, scarves, and belts: HOURS: Mon-Fri 8AM-to-4PM
Advertised as “more than a job board” on their website, Handshake is the biggest online job resource for students and graduates. The platform allows you to apply for jobs and internships by using the resume on the platform. Handshake can be accessed using your UWGB username and password. Be warned: Some jobs require federal work study.
Mock Interview and Resume Writing
Another great resource offered in the Career Services scope is resume and interview prep. Mock interview day is held once every semester; keep an eye out! Another valuable service is an interview prep day – the next one will be held on February 13 from 2-to-3PM in the Alumni Room in the Union. Career Services also offers resume writing workshops – the next one will be held on February 6 from 12:45-to-1:45PM in 1965 Room in the Union. Mark your calendar.
Career Services has a lot to offer, but there’s more happening on campus!
Located in CK One Space in Rose Hall 140, the Campus Cupboard is a resource for students to get a paper bag filled with food each month, just by using their ID! The Campus Cupboard is open during academic building hours – and open to all students, faculty and staff. They have dry goods such as Mac and Cheese, canned goods, Hamburger Helper and other quick, easy meals. A clothing closet with cleaning and personal hygiene items is also available.
Counseling and Health Center
Students can seek counseling for study habits, relationship issues, adjustment to school, eating disorders, depression, alcohol and drug concerns, self exploration – among other concerns. Health services include assessment of illness and injury, over-the-counter medications, information on health-related issues, tuberculosis skin testing, immunizations, laboratory testing, reproductive health care, and student health insurance.
Some appointments can be made online, otherwise call or stop in. The Center is located in Student Services room 1400 – just past the Bursar’s Office. There is no charge to see a nurse or a counselor. Free thermometers, condoms, and tampons are available. Click HERE to be directed to the Counseling and Health Center home page: HOURS: Mon-Fri 8AM-to-4:30PM
Students utilize Disability Services to receive academic accommodations including assistance with class note-taking. Students can request a notetaker for the classes they are in. A student who is part of that class will take and upload notes to be used. There is a short process to register for this resource and other services Disability Services offers! Click HERE: HOURS: Mon-Fri 8AM-to-4:30PM
The Learning Center
In the Cofrin Library Commons, The Learning Center helps students schedule individual sessions with student tutors who have all been chosen because they have completed the class – successfully – and are happy to share their knowledge. Study Groups for various classes also meet here: HOURS: Mon-Thurs 9:30AM-to-6PM, Fri 9:30AM-to-2PM
Available in the Cofrin Library, Librarians can answer any question from citations-to-paper writing-to-retrieving articles! Click HERE to communicate with a librarian.
