We think that with all the hard work you're doing, you deserve something sweet. Join us in Minor Hall 108 on October 2 from 5:00 - 6:15 p.m. for FREE Ben & Jerry's ice cream sundaes! Know someone interested in a major or minor in AAS or a minor in African Studies? Invite your friend to join us. We'll have some info there on our academic program and Prof. Shutt will be there to answer questions.
Students often ask us, "What can I do with this major/minor?" or "What am I qualified to do once I graduate from college?" -- have you ever wondered? How can you market your AAS or AS degree? What kinds of jobs are available? What about graduate or professional school? This will be a useful experience, regardless of your academic year at U.Va. Refreshments will be served before and after the event.

AAS & AS Students, We are looking forward to hosting you at this special, informal event to celebrate the end of classes and to fortify ourselves for papers and exams. Please try and RSVP through the invitation you received earlier this week.
This has been a very difficult few weeks for all of us and hopefully, this will be a time to gather informally, decompress a bit, to share some time together talking about how to bring about CHANGE and healing.
