Graduate School and Career Fair Expo

Career Development is hosting both an online and in-person Graduate School and Career Expo this spring! The Career Development team is proud to invite students, employers, and graduate colleges to connect online on February 18, 2022, from 1 – 4 p.m. and to our in-person event on March 4, 2022, from 10:30 a.m – 2:30 p.m. in the du Bois Center. Students of all majors are invited to attend this FREE event, whether they are looking to continue their education, seeking an internship, searching for full-time employment, or simply wanting to practice their networking skills!  
Encourage your student to get involved! Students should register via Handshake for the Virtual or In-Person Fair. After registering, remind your Lumberjack to sign up for one-on-one and group sessions with employers. There’s a lot your student can do before event day, including:  
  1. Completing their Handshake profile. Employers will be able to view your Lumberjack’s profile on Handshake, so encourage them to complete it and upload a resume.
  2. Getting familiar with group sessions and one-on-one sessions by reading Handshake’s guide.
  3. Watching a 1-hour webinar to maximize their virtual career fair attendance. 
  4. Ensuring they’re set up for technical success.  

Finally, if your Lumberjack needs some help polishing their resume before event day, encourage them to create a virtual appointment with one of our Career Specialists. We are happy to answer questions via email (Career@nau.edu) or by phone (928-523-1087). 

Suit-up with JCPenney! 

NAU Career Development is collaborating with JCPenney for the tenth semi-annual “College Suit-Up” event exclusively for NAU students. Over 800 students have taken advantage of this great deal in previous semesters, so we are bringing it back to benefit even more students. The event will take place at JCPenney in the Flagstaff Mall on Sunday, February 27, 2022 from 3 – 6 p.m. With an NAU ID, your student will receive a coupon for up to 60% off select men’s and women’s career and professional attire.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to obtain professional clothing for their first job, summer internship, class presentation, or interview. Optional transportation will be provided to and from the event. Registration is now open on Handshake. Encourage your student to take advantage of this exclusive shopping opportunity and begin to build their professional wardrobe!

Fall 2022 enrollment

It’s that time of year again! Students living on-campus can visit their Residential College Ambassador (RCA), who is trained to support your student through the enrollment process. RCAs are available to meet with your student one-on-one to help them navigate the course enrollment system, select classes, review their major progression plan, declare and/or change their major, and more.
Most first-year students will be able to begin enrolling in courses starting in March. If they have not already enrolled, you can help your student prepare by encouraging them to stop by their RCA’s Office Hours or contact us via email at RCProgram@nau.edu. The RCAs are excited to meet with your student and make sure they feel prepared and confident about their fall 2022 course schedule!
For more information, we recommend visiting the Office of the Registrar’s Important Dates and Deadlines page, where you can find the Early Enrollment Calendar for fall 2022.  

2022-2023 scholarship application NOW OPEN!

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid application is now open and will close on March 15, 2022. Encourage your student to visit nau.academicworks.com now to complete the application before the deadline!

How group counseling can benefit your Lumberjack

College students wear many hats. They know first-hand how difficult balancing school, work, exercise, relationships, illness, and personal matters can be. It can often be overwhelming to handle on their own, and that is where group counseling comes in. NAU offers a variety of therapy groups that address many issues that a college student could be going through. NAU Counseling is currently offering groups focusing on topics such as substance abuse, coping skills, grief, gender diversity, anxiety, yoga, autism, trauma, and depression. Groups are open to all Lumberjacks in Arizona for the low cost of $5. We ask that students commit to at least four group sessions.
Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. So what are the benefits of group counseling? 

• Students recognize they are not alone and find support.
• Students discuss and reflect on issues with their peers.
• Students not only receive help but can provide help to their peers as well.
• Students develop coping skills.
For more information, explore the counseling groups for spring 2022 or visit the Counseling Services webpage. To have yourself or your student connected to a group, please contact kristin.anderson@nau.edu
