We are looking for someone to join the executive cabinet as the Experience Eastman Coordinator for next semester. We would like someone who is familiar with the Eastman campus with ideas for facilitating the bond between our campuses, and who will encourage the utilization of Experience Eastman supplemental funds for programming that brings students from both campuses together. Applications are due Thursday, December 2nd by 9 pm.
Printed brochures (PDF) with transportation methods and maps between the Eastman and River campuses are now available in Common Connection, Wallis Hall, and the Hive Website. If you are interested in running an Experience Eastman program, please visit sa.rochester.edu/eastman for more information.
The Experience Eastman program has an exciting new addition…the first SAAC e-Form. Student organizations can now apply for Supplemental Funds through this new Experience Eastman e-Form. Groups may use an Experience Eastman program to suffice the ‘Eastman Interraction’ question on their Midyear Report. Read more…
This program, launched in 2009, is an effort to more closely integrate the University of Rochester River Campus and the Eastman School of Music. The theory behind this program relies on the idea that the two campuses may be diverse and geographically separated, but nevertheless, they belong to a University of One.
Please contact Ben Pollack at email@example.com with any questions or contact information for student leaders at the Eastman School of Music.
Last week, a group of Student Government leaders from the River Campus and the Eastman School of Music met for dinner to broadly discuss strategies for connecting our campuses. Many River Campus students are interested in getting more involved at Eastman, and many Eastman students are interested in spending more time on the River Campus.
The dinner was hosted by Vice President Dean Paul Burgett, who offered great insight on the history of the campuses and offered suggestions to bring them together. Also in attendance were Anne-Marie Algier, Associate Dean of Students and Director of Wilson Commons Student Activities on the River Campus as well as Jason Smith, Assistant Dean for Student Life at Eastman. Both offered valuable suggestions as we work toward this shared goal.
A wide range of ideas came out of this meeting, and the leaders of both campuses are looking forward to continuing to meet. Look out for programs and events this year that bring Eastman students and River Campus students together!
