Help me start a new student organization

I am hoping to start a student organization on campus next semester that will bring Willamette's musicians and artists into local hospitals, and I want to find a group to help me get this started. We have a campus full of creative people and philanthropists, and this organization should cost almost nothing to run, so it shouldn't be hard. I start this group because I am disappointed that despite the rapid pace of advancement in medical technology, the social environment of a modern hospital can be very dull and stressful. Chronic patients spend weeks in hospitals with not much company, and not enough to do, giving them plenty of time to lose their sense of dignity and acquire a toxic sense of self-pity in its place.I think that human presence, music, and creativity are some of the strongest antidotes to this psychological problem. I have a relative who made a career of this kind of work, and she has countless miracle stories to tell about its effectiveness. I have no doubt that this kind of work can make the difference between life and death, and no doubt that it will be a lot of fun, and very rewarding to share our creativity and enthusiasm with people who will truly benefit from it and appreciate it. I cannot promise that the hospital will allow us to work there, but I am optimistic, and I think we have a much better chance convincing them if we can show that many students are excited about doing this. If you have a passion for art, music, or storytelling, or just want to help this group get off the ground, please contact me at nhechtma@willamette.edu. Also, add me on Facebook, and I'll start an online group for us. I'm excited to get this going!

Seeking opportunities for work in food systems or sustainable agriculture in Seattle

Hello!I graduated Willamette in 2014 with a degree in Environmental Science, and my passion is food - eating it, growing it, cooking it, thinking about it - and all the complexities therein, ie. food justice, sustainable agriculture, etc. I'm looking to move to the thriving metropolis that is Seattle and set down some roots in the food movement there. I'm hoping to connect with people for both informational interviews and potential employment opportunities.A little about me: I have practical experience in many aspects of the food system, from grower, to picker, cook, waitress, manager, and now garden educator at an emergency food bank. I am a very people-oriented person who loves connecting people and planning events. I would like to be involved in a capacity where I am making real positive change on the food system.Thanks!

Informational Interview - Consulting, Tech, HigherEd

I earned my BA Music at Willamette, and I am now an MBA student at Oregon State University. I am wondering who I should talk to about careers in technology, business consulting, and/or higher education in the Seattle, Portland, and Corvallis metro areas. While these are very different career aspirations, I would like to be a change agent in any company or organization. I would like to position myself to become involved with a firm that does strategy consulting or helping troubled companies stay afloat and provide education to thrive from whatever status they are at. During my time as Phi Delta Theta Fraternity president at Willamette, I learned I thrived in managing goals and setting timelines for my executive committee to meet. While success was varied due to our student schedules, I enjoyed the pressures the position provided and seeing the outcomes of my team's direct decisions manifest in the organization.

'15 Mathematics Grad with IT Experience, Looking For Opportunities

Hello!I am diving head first into the job market and it sure has been an interesting experience so far. I'm hoping that the switchboard can help point me in the right direction!While my degree was in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science, my current goal is to utilize my experience at WITS (Willamette Integrated Technology Services) as an IT Specialist and Help Desk Assistant to help improve the IT and/or other support services at other organizations within the northwest. My experience includes working closely with Willamette personnel in solving their computing problems, ranging from network issues to computer setups and A/V needs. I believe that WITS has been a great stepping stone in terms of solid work experience and skills (not to mention the people, who have been fantastic to work with), and so I would like to take that experience and apply it elsewhere.In my own personal time I have been expanding upon my own technical skills in learning how to build and maintain websites as well as exploring applications of web technologies.My long-term goals involve becoming more involved in IT system administration and/or web development. Whether that involves more education or just finding the right job opportunities is undecided for me as of yet, but I want to reach out to the alumni association to see if there are other possible avenues that maybe I just haven't explored yet.Any advice or ideas towards this would be greatly appreciated! I have also included a link to my resume here.Cheers,Taylor Mutch

Volunteer Proofreaders for Vintage Kid's Book

Hello everyone!I translated a Young Adult / children's book. Now, I need help to make the text more suitable for an American audience.The book, Yan Bibiyan: The Incredible Adventures of a Kid, was published in 1933 in Bulgaria. It has been been a beloved classic ever since.Since it was written in a colloquial village dialect, and almost 100 years ago, the style can be pretty difficult at times. It's even more challenging when trying to remain faithful to the original.The author's welcome: "...you will learn how our hero became friends with a little devil named Fyut, how this imp exchanged his head with one made of clay, how our hero ended up in the magic kingdom of the great wizard Mirilailai and how, after many marvelous and brave adventures, he saved himself. His suffering and his battle to free himself from evil ennobled his soul, made him brave and resourceful."The text is 40 pages long (about 27,000 words).Please get back to me and I can send you the Google Documents link.PS. If you're a native Spanish speaker, I can also send you that version.
