9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History"

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War. 

9:00 AM - 11:45 AM An Introduction to Behavioral-Interviewing

For managers of staff only

March 27, 2014 9:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Location: Emmanuel College, Administration Building, Fenway Room

Presented by: Alan Paret

Behavioral interviewing is said to be 55 percent predictive of future on-the-job behavior, while traditional interviewing is only 10 percent predictive. Behavioral interviewing is based on the concept that the best predictor of future performance is past performance. Behavioral interviews are structured around core competencies. This workshop concentrates on the pre-interview preparation; developing questions and their value; the interview techniques that get specific, behavior-based examples of past performance; and the strategies that follow through on this process.

9:00 AM - 11:00 AM Coffee Hour!
Come and stop by the Office of Diversity Services (Archer 481) on Thursday mornings from 9AM to 11AM for coffee hour! Enjoy free bagels, snacks, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

 “You look at Boston, at the skyline, the courthouse, Boston Harbor—that's Joe Moakley.  .... So much of what is positive in this state, so much of government investment, is because of Joe Moakley.”

-- Congressman James P. McGovern, D-Mass., Suffolk University interview, 2003

5:00 PM - 7:30 PM SGA Alumni Panel & Networking Reception
A common question we consistently answer as a member of the Student Government Association is: What exactly is SGA? Our answers are usually the same: We are student council college edition. We listen to problems that students have and highlight issues around campus, then we work with administration to fix these problems and issues. 

This description is quite spot on, and truly encapsulates the business end of what we do. However, it falls significantly short in capturing the essence of SGA. We are more than student representatives; we are a family. Since SGA's inception, the work that we have done, the impacts that we have made, and the undeniable personal growth that we have experienced via SGA have equalized us all. We each share a common bond as we write different stories. Any edifice requires a strong foundation, and for many of us that foundation will always be SGA.

For these reasons, we ask you to join us for the First Annual SGA Alumni Event. Let us reminisce while sharing a few stories, having a few laughs, and cementing the bonds that already exist.
