Written by Katie Turcio-Canales, Marketing Intern

Are you ready for graduation?

Attention, seniors! If you’re graduating in May, the countdown has begun. We know from experience that you’ve already got a lot on your plate -- applying for jobs, reaching out to all your networking contacts, doing your best to stave off senioritis. Unfortunately, this only intensifies as graduation weekend closes in. Do yourself a favor and get ready for the parties, family gatherings and pre-graduation to-do’s now. Otherwise, you’ll be pulling your hair out trying to squeeze it all in during those first two weeks of May. And you’ve got exams to worry about then.

Harry Potter’s Science meets the U of Nebraska-Lincoln

There’s an unexpected undergraduate honors chemistry class being offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It is called a ‘Muggle’s Guide to Harry Potter’s Chemistry’, and it explores the magical chemistry - “potions” - taught at the imaginary Hogwarts School.  The twist to this course is that this serious subject incorporates a cultural aspect, which is meant to encourage more students to take chemistry.

Creativity and Being “Liked” Can Help You Win a $1,000 Scholarship

This is just the start of Church Hill Classics’ sixth annual Frame My Future Scholarship contest where five creative students from across the country will each win $1,000 to help with their education. The scholarship contest still is different than the usual scholarships out there that require a long essay or extensive forms to submit.  Plus, one exciting change is that Facebook Fan Favorites will used to determine two of the 24 Finalists.
