Campus News

Before you head off on that fabulous senior-year spring break, make sure you've taken care of the paperwork for graduation. In order to graduate, you must apply for a diploma from your school or college. If you're in LSA, tomorrow is the last day to submit your diploma application form so your name is included in the May Commencement Book. If you don't care about seeing your name in print, you have until April 16. Colleges have different deadlines, so make sure you check with yours now for the important dates.

Make your U-M memories last--purchase a 2003 Michiganesian yearbook so you can look back on the good ol' days and reminisce years from now about people and places. The yearbook is $60; if you have it delivered it's an additional $8. You can even have it billed to your student account. Order yours today!

Maybe you didn't get to plan the awesome spring break you had hoped.

In the Know
A job interview is not the place to show off your new faded jeans or your J. Lo-inspired velour jump suit. The way you present yourself says a lot about who you are and how you will fit in at the company you're interviewing with. Dressing conservatively is the key to success.

Guys should stick to a sold two-piece suit in a color such as navy or charcoal. Make sure your socks match the suit--save your white tube socks for the CCRB! Avoid loud prints in ties or dress shirts--keep them classy. Ladies should wear some type of suit, such as a skirt and jacket or pants and jacket, in a conservative color such as navy, gray or black. Hosiery is a must. Keep jewelry to a minimum. The night before the interview, make sure your clothes are neatly pressed.
