Student Regent to visit campus, urge others to apply for post

Students will get a chance to learn what it's like to work with the UC Board of Regents when the current student Regent, Adam Rosenthal of UC Davis, and the student Regent-designate, Maria Ledesma of UCLA, visit UCSC on February 3.

Rosenthal and Ledesma will meet with UCSC students at noon Friday at Bay Tree Conference Room D to encourage students to seek the position of student Regent.

If a UCSC student becomes student Regent, it would be a first for the campus; no students from UCSC have served since the position was established in 1975.

Career Center advisers and staff are available to review applicants' resumes and application materials, which include essays, and to discuss interviewing techniques. Career Center advisers are available during drop-in advising hours from 9:30 a.m.-11:10 a.m. Monday through Friday and 1:30-3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday at 305 Bay Tree Building (the Career Center will be closed for Presidents' Day on February 20).

The Career Center and Writing Program will also offer orientations and workshops to help applicants prepare their applications. An orientation will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. February 8, and an application review workshop will take place from 3:30 to 5 p.m. February 15, both at Bay Tree Conference Room A.

Applicants will have a chance to meet with Chancellor Denice D. Denton about UC systemwide issues at 9:45 a.m. on February 22 in Room 212, Kerr Hall. (Interested students are being asked to RSVP to by February 8.)

Applications are due February 23. More information is available at
