On the Tiger Trek: London Half Block trip, participants will travel to London from January 7-12, 2019 for a tour of a variety of organizations. They will also meet prestigious alumni in order to learn about potential career paths and network with international professionals. This experience is designed for students who are interested in eventually working/living abroad, and would like to hear about alumni experiences and opportunities in the London, UK area. Twelve students will be selected.

Registrations are open NOW in Summit: Student Life. Apply before October 18th at 5:00pm. Students will be notified of their selection by the first week of Block 3.

On Monday, October 1st, join Uli Nasibova ’06 (founder of Uli Gelateria in Los Angeles) for a talk titled Underwater Basket Weaving in Real Life: How the Block Plan Prepared Me for Entrepreneurship. Her talk will take place at 12:15pm in Gaylord Hall in Worner. Remember to RSVP on Handshake!

Uli will share her experience in being a food entrepreneur in Los Angles and how the unique structure of the Block Plan prepared her to handle the challenges of opening a business in a big city with no prior experience in food production or retail industries.

Uli is originally from Baku, Azerbaijan and was an international student at Colorado College, majoring in French Literature and Mathematical Economics. She left her successful career at a premier Wall Street research and investment management firm to open a small-batch gelato shop in the heart of Los Angeles in 2014. Several years later, Gelateria Uli has two locations and has been named “Best Gelato” by the Los Angeles Magazine.

Or, “Why There’s No Such Thing As a Useless Major: From Italian Major to Software Developer”.

Taught by Dr. Jordan Travis Radke and Dr. Anthony C. Siracusa.

In partnership with Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), and CC’s journalism minor, students will examine the theory and practice of engaged journalism through an experiential course project around “Guns in Schools.”

Course content will cover concepts, principles, and strategies for engaging communities as active participants in, rather than subjects of, journalism that produces publically relevant and actionable knowledge.

Please direct questions to jradke@coloradocollege.edu or asiracusa@coloradocollege.edu.
