Podcast: How research brings reality to classroom learning
Getting a jump-start on a career is enticing to any college student, undergraduate or graduate. Robert Marande, dean of the College of Science and Technology, explains how research provides many beneficial opportunities for students, including a chance to collaborate with faculty working within their own discipline as well as applying what they learn in the classroom to a real-life project — an experience and specified training that’s attractive to a potential employer.

Have a safe and happy holiday season with these safety tips
- Use an inexpensive light timer when you are away and ask a trusted neighbor or family member to pick up your newspapers and mail.
- Burglars know to look for the hidden door key near the front entrance. Don’t hide spare keys under rocks, in flowerpots, or above door ledges.
- Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave your house or apartment, even for a few minutes.
- Keep gifts out of public view. At home do not display them near a window. While shopping lock them in the trunk.
- When going to your car have your keys in your hand ready to unlock the door but take a quick look inside the car before entering.
- Even though you are rushed and thinking about a thousand things, stay alert to your surroundings.
- After holidays, don’t pile up empty gift boxes from your new computer, DVD player, or stereo receiver on the street for the garbage man. Burglars appreciate knowing that you have new expensive gifts inside for them to steal. Break the boxes down or cut them up to conceal the items better.
- Never drink and drive.
