At 1 p.m. Friday.

SEVIS stands for Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. It is a nationwide, Internet-based system that the U.S. government uses to maintain accurate and current information on non-immigrant students, exchange visitors, and their dependents. If you are a student or a faculty/staff member that will be working with International students this will be a great session for you to learn know how to better serve those students. I'll be discussing exactly what OPT and CPT is and what type of jobs and internships they are allowed to receive under their visas. The Friday session is in Hall-Perrine West and Monday's is in Shaw.

Ear Hustle brings you stories of life inside prison, shared and produced by those living it. The podcast is a partnership between Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams, currently incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, and Nigel Poor, a Bay Area artist. The team works in San Quentin’s media lab to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny, and always honest, offering a nuanced view of people living within the American prison system. This program is facilitated by Grace Chamberlain Rowray. For additional information she can be reached at gchamberlain@cornellcollege.edu.
