Why you should stop acting like a ‘grown-up’

Posted on November 19, 2014 by Barb Krier ’14, counseling psychology .

People of all ages want to play and have fun. Children are masters at reducing stress by being silly and creative. They giggle and laugh at themselves without worrying what someone else will think. Is there an age when we are supposed to give that up? Is it age 18 or 21, the age of young adulthood? Surely by the time we graduate from college we should “act like grown-ups.”

The Delaware Valley College Center for Student Professional Development’s graduate assistants-with Maggie Villari ’13, ’15, serving as lead-created a series of videos to help students prepare for job fairs.  We, as an office, decided that the videos were necessary in order to provide students with a more relevant, visual way to learn about how to best prepare for the job fair. The “How Should I Dress?” video in particular was created because it is one of the most common questions students asked and probably one of the most misunderstood preparation steps.

Am I Eligible for Grants?

Posted on October 31, 2014 by Delaware Valley College.

The main difference between a grant and a loan is that you don’t have to repay a grant if you meet certain requirements, while a loan must be repaid without exceptions. There are standard requirements that you must meet to be eligible for a grant, for example, you must be a U.S. citizen, have a valid social security number, have a high school diploma or GED, and complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA includes information such as your parents’ income to help the U.S. Department of Education determine your need for financial aid. After you file the form providing this information, you'll receive a document explaining what you'll be awarded, if anything.

Interning with The Butterfly House

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Courtney Scott '15, conservation and wildlife management.

I had never even considered a career in entomology. In fact, I was accepted to Delaware Valley College as biology major. After switching my major to conservation and wildlife management my career plans began to change. By the end of my sophomore year, I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do after graduation. Since I was very active in DelVal’s Apiary Society since freshman year and had developed a love for bees, I thought about pursuing entomology. Dr. Chris Tipping’s entomology class soon became one of my favorites, and it only got better when one day one of my classmates brought in a small container with a monarch butterfly in it. 

Her name was Stommy Blauth and she was auditing the class to learn more about butterflies and other insects. We became good friends, and she even brought in a monarch butterfly for my collection. She told me she was the director of the butterfly house at Churchville Nature Center, and she was always looking for volunteers to work there during the summer. May 2014 rolled around and I was officially in training to becoming a butterfly docent and caterpillar rearer.

Getting more graduation caps in the air

Posted on October 17, 2014 by Wendy Wakefield '12, counseling psychology.

Only 59 percent of students attending public and public charter high schools in Washington, D.C., graduate within four years--the lowest rate in the nation. My name is Wendy Wakefield and I graduated from Delaware Valley College in 2012 with a degree in counseling psychology. I am now a high school special education mathematics teacher in our nation’s capital.  I became a teacher because I believe everyone has the right to a quality education, and not everyone receives that, especially our youth. Young people who leave school without the skills and knowledge they need are less able to provide a decent quality of life. As a teacher, it is my job to make sure that the students I teach can obtain the education that they deserve, especially those students with disabilities who are often overlooked.

Stafford loans are either subsidized or unsubsidized and this article will explain each of them.

3 Reasons You Need a Resume Now

Posted on October 2, 2014 by Stacy Swearengen, coordinator of career services.

Having helped students with job and college applications over the years, I realize there always seems to be some very pressing reason not to work on your resume—from having too much homework to having no time because of a "Big Bang Theory" marathon. While some reasons are undoubtedly valid, the reality is that there will always be some distraction or priority to divert our attention away from the things we really need to do. 

Here are the top three, most pressing reasons you should have a resume now—no matter where you are in your career as a student at Delaware Valley College or as a job seeker.

I have lived in six states, moved nine times, and driven to all corners of the country. I've worked for nonprofits, government organizations and a university.

The importance of thank you

Posted on September 17, 2014 by Laurie Ward, chief marketing and communications officer.

A wise man once told me, “none of us is promised anything in life.”

I’ll go one step further and add, “So we must be thankful for every opportunity.”

Not only should we be thankful, we need to express it. In this day of technology and social media, there are fewer opportunities for personal interactions if you don’t make a point of doing it. Often it’s easier to send a quick text that says “thnx!” Thank you notes in your personal life are just good manners. They show the type of character you have. And they make the other person feel good. Who doesn’t want to be responsible for adding a little joy to someone’s day?

Making a good first impression, the moment you walk in the door

Posted on August 28, 2014 by Laurie Ward, chief marketing and communications officer.

In my first job out of college, I was the receptionist at a TV station. I answered the phone and greeted visitors.

When the general sales manager was hiring new sales people, he purposely made them wait. They didn’t know it, but it was all part of the interview. As account executives, they would have to make cold calls on businesses. Maybe they would get in to see someone, maybe they wouldn’t. And if they did, they would probably be asked to wait to be fit into someone’s schedule.

Jeff was testing their patience. Did they constantly look at the clock and sigh?

Founding DelVal’s Ducks Unlimited Chapter

In September of 2012, I worked with Christopher Adams ’13 to start The Delaware Valley College Chapter of Ducks Unlimited. We worked with Delaware Valley College Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Gregory George and Ducks Unlimited Regional Director Joe DeMartino to found the chapter. Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in waterfowl and wetlands conservation. Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 13 million acres of wetland habitat since 1937, and as a student chapter we were hoping we could help raise money to support their efforts and also help waterfowl populations on the local level.

Learning culturally-competent counseling practices, current theoretical approaches, and practicing self-reflection in this area will help you acquire the skills necessary to engage a diverse clientele.

My first year at DelVal

It was a little more than a year ago when I accepted President Brosnan’s invitation to join the DelVal community as vice president for student affairs. And I am so glad that I did! This past year has gone by quickly and in retrospect is a bit blurry, as I had a lot to learn, a lot of people to meet, and much to observe and ponder. One thing that’s not blurry about the past year is my impression of the student body here at DelVal. I have great clarity about making the statement that the students at DelVal are among the most interesting and engaging that I have met over the course of my career in higher education.

Ethical Decision-Making in Your Counseling Practice

For counseling psychology professionals, fully understanding the importance of ethics and values is one of the most crucial aspects of a counseling practice. Rarely do straightforward ethical dilemmas arise with simple answers. That’s why it’s essential to utilize clinical supervision and have a solid foundation and understanding of the ethical decision-making process advocated by your professional association.

Do one thing better: be a connector

Have you ever been to a social gathering, standing idly by while your friend chatted with someone else, waiting for them to introduce you?  Has a peer told you about an event they were attending and encouraged you to attend? When we are either left out of a conversation or brought into a conversation, it tends to have a huge impact on us.

The Long Goodbye

After burning land as a part of a conservation project, Sarah O'Shea '11 adjusts to seeing green again. For Sarah's earlier post, check out "Burn Baby Burn"

I have adjusted my eyes for the past six months to viewing the world in browns, yellows and whites. I extended this view by moving west for the spring and now, as my last day arrives a new color is starting to emerge. A color that I had long forgotten about and was sure I would never see again, green. A favorite color of mine yes, but we departed ways for the past couple of months and now my mind struggles to piece the environment back together. Lime green treetops mirror the pattern of the river, the hillsides have now taken on the color green. Flowers blossom giving even more color to the earth than before. Bison can be found munching on the greenest grass and the baby calves are getting their first taste of the "good stuff."

Participating in National Dairy Challenge

The Dairy Challenge contest, in my opinion, is more than just a contest; it’s an experience of a lifetime. It makes all the hard work that goes into earning an education beyond high school feel absolutely worth it, the often challenging task of working as a team becomes a place where you can truly value the characteristics of each individual you encounter, networking becomes an easy practice, and at the end of the week, you truly have made a difference in someone’s life, which is simply indescribable.

Then a student emails you, asking about something related to the ceremony, and you remember that hundreds of lives are about to change in a major way. You are about to be part of a significant milestone in students’ lives, and it takes you back to your own college days.

A year after graduating from DelVal

Posted on May 6, 2014 by Emily Meagher ’13.

With graduation fast approaching and all of the current seniors ready to spread their wings, I wanted to take a minute to express my gratitude and let you know what an impact the Equine Studies program has had on my first year in the ‘real world.’

Exactly four days after graduating from Delaware Valley College, I hopped on a plane and traveled to Colorado to work as a Wrangler at North Fork Dude and Guest Ranch.  A high school dream turned into a reality, I was truly excited to step away from the stress of college and slow my pace for a summer.  Sit on a horse all day and talk to guests while riding breath-taking trails in the Rocky Mountains? Anyone can handle that.  What I didn’t realize was how applicable my equine studies courses would be, even in such an alternate universe within the equine industry.

My DelVal Story

Posted on April 15, 2014 by Sarah Stout '14.

Growing up in Doylestown, I never thought DelVal would be my dream school. I never thought I would look forward to class or club meetings or spending time on campus. I never imagined I would make so many friends from different places who were driven to my hometown for their education—but I did. I have experienced and seen more during my time at DelVal than I ever anticipated. From traveling abroad with professors, to attending international conferences, to starting a new club on campus; each experience has shifted the way I look at the world and how I see my role in the big picture.

Ways you can lead every day

Posted on April 8, 2014 by Dr. April Vari, vice president for student affairs.

The other day as I was walking across the DelVal campus, I did something -- or more accurately didn't do something -- that I later regretted.  I walked by an empty beer can on the ground and I didn't pick it up to throw it into the nearest recycling bin.  I was in a hurry, and to be honest I didn't know where that can had come from and just wasn't keen on the idea of picking it up.
