New Advisor Day

New Advisor Day 2014

New Advisor Day 2014

New Advisor Day, which will be held on February 17, 2015, marks Bellarmine first-year students’ official transition to an advisor in their major. At the event, students have the opportunity to connect with their departments and meet their advisors. Undecided freshmen will have the opportunity to explore one major of interest or speak with an ARC advisor. Undecided students are advised by an ARC staff member until they declare a major.

Topics each department will address in the New Advisor Day meeting are:

  • Major Requirements for fall (if appropriate, distribute a copy of the major program of studies from catalog)
  • Admission requirements for the major if any  (e.g.  Nursing, Education)
  • Number of electives within the major (e.g. 24 hours of electives)
  • Opportunity for an additional minor/double major and ways to determine choosing an additional minor or second major

Encourage your student to attend this event and get connected with his or her major!

Any questions about New Advisor Day can be directed to the Academic Resource Center: 502-272-7400.

Intern Abroad and Earn IDC 301 Credit

In addition to summer options for study abroad, students may intern abroad during the summer and earn IDC 301 credit.

Another great summer option that students may not associate with study abroad is an internship. When asked what sort of experiences employers want to see on resumes, the number one answer is “internships.” The number two answer is “international internships.” Some majors require an internship, so this is a perfect fit to help them complete all of their degree requirements. However, students may also count their internship as their IDC 301 requirement, making these incredible experiences accessible to all Bellarmine students. The International Programs Office has found that ISA gives students the personal attention they need to craft an individualized internship experience abroad. Their 2015 brochure is available online: http://studiesabroad.com/content/binaries/catalog/internship-catalog-full.pdf. ISA offers internships in the following locations:

  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Chile
  • Spain
  • London, England

Students do not have to speak any language other than English in order to intern abroad. A 6-week internship counts as 4 credit hours and a 10-week internship counts as 6 credit hours. Any major or career field can find a meaningful experience that will be great for their resume and future job prospects. Check out what previous interns have done around the world: http://www.gointernabroad.com/.

For more information on about study abroad, please contact Bridget Klein, bklein@bellarmine.edu.
