“Improv for Interviews” workshop for students

event graphic

Career Services is offering an “Improv for Interviews” workshop. Led by Barbara Allen, Professional Development and Retention Department coordinator and experienced improvisational actress and director, students will learn the practical applications and connections between “improv” and leadership.

Improvisation - or improve - is a form of theater in which the plot, characters, and dialogue of a game, scene or story, are made up in the moment. The skills and mindset that come from learning improvisational techniques span far beyond the world of theater. It is being incorporated in professional development training across the country. This workshop will include fun, interactive activities that will help a student be able to think quickly on their feet, recover from making a misstep, and see the interview process in a whole new light! 

The workshop for students will be held on Wednesday, April 3 from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. in the media studio in the lower level of the Library. For more information on how to sign up, please go here.

Cleveland Avenue construction update

The road work continuing on Cleveland Avenue as part of a city streetscape project now has two blocks limited to one-way traffic as you leave the Columbus Campus and head toward downtown. Detours are marked to get into campus if you’re arriving. One alternative to avoid the construction is to use Washington Avenue to enter campus from Broad Street.

That will take you directly to the parking garage and the large parking lots. This one-way traffic is expected to be in place for about one month. Additional road construction will continue through the summer.
