Spring 2015 * Issue No. 11


One more week left before Spring Break! 
So get advisement done before you leave for the beaches and Vegas trips! We are entering our third week of advisement, so there's only four weeks left. Advisors will not be holding their office hours during spring recess. So please remember to get your advisement completed, in order to register for Fall 2015 classes. There will be a registration hold on your CSUN portal if you do not meet with an advisor. (Campus will be closed on Tuesday, March 31 for Cesar Chavez Day). 

    Freshmen & Sophomores: Please call the Student Resource Center at 818-677-2024 to make an appointment. Please have your student ID number ready and available. 

    Juniors & Seniors: Below is a copy of the journalism advisers available office hours. No appointment is required. Please stop by the department office (MZ210) for your academic file and advisement form. Once completed, bring both the file and form back to the office in order to get your registration hold removed. 

Permission numbers are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the journalism office at 
818-677-3135.

  • 64% of them say it’s a priority for them to make the world a better place.
  • 72% would like to be their own boss. But if they do have to work for a boss, 79% of them would want that boss to serve more as a coach or mentor.
  • 88% prefer a collaborative work-culture rather than a competitive one.
  • 74% want flexible work schedules
  • And 88% want “work-life integration,” which isn’t the same as work-life balance, since work and life now blend together inextricably.
