Raikes School Visit

Hello everyone!

I spoke with Anna Pressler, Director of Recruiting and Student Success at the Raikes School, who you met last week, and she suggested if you want to visit the Raikes School, you all set up individual meetings. This will enable you to have separate academic appointments throughout the day with the college you are interested in, whether that’s the College of Arts & Sciences for Computer Science, the College of Business Administration for Actuarial Science or other business majors, or the College of Engineering for Computer Engineering or other engineering majors. You’ll get more of a feel for what your curriculum would be like, and it will help you see what your story might look like here at UNL and in the Raikes School.

I suggest you set up your visit for either November 6 or November 9, so at the end of your campus visit, you all end up in Kauffman at the Raikes School at the same time. This site has more information about setting up a visit, and make sure you mention you also want to visit the Raikes School. This is not just for seniors, anyone is welcome to set up a visit, but freshmen and sophomores, you still have some time.


Here is more information about the Raikes School for anyone who didn’t see it already:

GET HIP Update for 10/10/2015

Great job everyone!  You guys are doing great.  I will not be in class with you on Saturday!  A selfie will be taken from my traveling location.  Remember, if you miss, you need to take a selfie from were you are and post it to the Facebook group.  Thanks

I am still missing blogs from some of you.  You can catch them up.  Here is who I am missing:

Anthony Wood
Cameron Hickey
Gabi Jaapar
Jonny Baker
Katie Gerot
Theresa Bracht

There were many of you who were late.  Remember, it needs to have Monday’s date in the post for it to considered on time.  This week is a chance to get them all on time!

Here is the homework:

  1.  Review the videos that were posted in the comments of last weeks blog post.  There might be some new material that you have never seen before.  Learn something new.
  2. For your 3rd blog post, update me with what you learned this week. I would like a sample of code as well as a full paragraph.  Also tell me if you can use your new skills in school yet.  If so, how are you using them.  If not, how could you?
  3. Share your post with a friend, family member, teacher or anyone you desire.  Ask them to leave a comment.  Extra credit if they do.  Some of you will need this extra credit for sure.

Have a great week.  I will see you back next Saturday!
