4th Annual Creek Week Clean Up

    UCCS adopted a segment of the Fountain Creek through the City of Colorado Springs’ adopt-a-waterway cleanup program. This event takes place once each semester and offers students a chance to be a part of the watershed-wide Creek Week initiative that involved more than 2,000 volunteers.

    This year’s event will take place on Oct. 4 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. Students will meet in Lot 100 near University Hall. Students can reserve their volunteer spot at the event’s page in the UCCS Events Calendar.

    Students will learn how to design their LinkedIn profile to be appealing to employers, what fields of information should be up to date and easily visible, and how to utilize simple self marketing techniques.

    The webinar will take place from 6-7 p.m. on Oct. 4.
