Greetings from the fair and balmy north, friends! Baylor is being well-represented here at RMMLA, and yet still the Digest comes winging to you, hopefully bringing a crisp, pleasant breeze with it. Perhaps try sitting in the path of an AC vent as you read this.
- “Looking at Blake,” Dr. Alexander Reiger
- In Carroll Science 101, so you can’t even whinge about the walk to the ABL.
- Go look at Blake. Look at him. Blake will look at you. You will become one.
- Also: refreshments!
- Lanette Thompson: “Faculty and International Students: Tips for Effective Interactions”
- Jones Library 200
- Stop interacting ineffectively with your international students.
- Fregister here.
- Tailgate spot is “right across the river from the stadium,” which narrows things down hugely. Look for the barbecue truck and pallid graduate students.
- They have upped the ante by promising you free cookies from Double B farms.
- Looks like you can still RSVP here.
- Panel discussion, “Alternative Paths: Non-Faculty Areas of Employment and Service”
- If you would like to run screaming from the academy once you finish your degree, this is the session for you. (It probably is useful.)
- Jones Library Creekmore Room, 9:30-11:00 AM.
- Fregister here.
- “How to Win Jobs and Impress People: Information and Workshop”
- 3:30-4:30 PM, Carroll Science G-09
- Quoth Jeremy Leatham: “Come get practical advice about applying for academic positions. Bring electronic or hard copies of professional documents or job application materials (CV, teaching philosophy, cover letter, statement of faith, etc.) and get feedback from the pros.”
- Pros being people who have gotten those jobs the rest of us covet.
- Still a ways away, but you can apply for the competition here.
- Take three minutes to justify your labors to a room full of strangers.
- The winners will get money, everyone will get food.
- This will not excuse you from the snake fight portion of your thesis defense.
- The GSA would like you to know the following: “The Baylor Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK is a national leadership honor society) is now accepting applications for the fall 2014 semester.

As C. J. Cregg would say, that’s a full lid.
