Fall Family Weekend :: Student Panel from the 2018 San Francisco Student Technology Trek

Friday, October 5th at 12:30 PM in Hillcrest 103 – open to all students and visiting family.

Student Treks connect students with multiple alumni and organizations during on-site visits and job shadowing experiences. These fully-funded CCI-led trips, typically hosted over breaks, are unique “living and learning” cohort experiences that provide the students with an opportunity to explore a particular field of interest.

After a weeklong “Tech Trek” to Silicon Valley, where they were immersed in daily job-shadowing experiences, site visits, reflection dinners, Q&A sessions, and receptions, our 10 Middlebury undergraduates returned to campus for the start of the Spring Semester with a better understanding of what it takes to land a job at Amazon, Facebook, Google, or other high-tech companies. Come learn about their experiences and our plans for future Treks in this engaging panel discussion!

Panel discussion led by Jason Grant, Instructor in Computer Science and faculty leader on the Tech Trek.

Oxeon Partners Coming to Campus 10/18

Information Session Thursday, October 18 at 4:00 PM in CCI Library – RSVP in Handshake.

Come meet alumna Isabelle Tabah ’18!

“Oxeon” is the Greek word for relationships. They are inspired by how relationships can drive new jobs, investments, business development opportunities, or just a simple introduction between people. That notion permeates everything they do.

They are a healthcare growth services firm. They connect their healthcare company partners with the fundamental drivers of business growth – great people, great business development partnerships, strategic investments, next generation business ideas and other growth-related services.

But what that all boils down to is that they value relationships more than transactions, and they value people more than anything—especially their power to drive innovation and transformation in the healthcare industry.

Oxeon is hiring for their NYC & SF offices! If you are passionate about healthcare, start ups, recruiting, people, making a difference and functioning as an impact player, check out their open Associate position in Handshake.


Volunteer with MREMS on Thursday, 10/11

On Thursday, October 11, 2018 from about 7:30 am to noon Middlebury Regional EMS (MREMS) will be participating in an emergency preparedness and response exercise for University of Vermont Health Network-Porter Medical Center (UVMHN-PMC) and community response partners.

The vision for this exercise will be to test and validate the policies, plans, and procedures for managing an influx of patients to the Porter Medical Center Emergency Department (ED) based on some type of mass casualty event.  One option under consideration would be a simultaneous ‘disaster event’ at Helen Porter that generates the ED influx.

PMC is looking for a few mock patients to help make this more realistic and be moulaged and transported as part of this drill. Please wear old clothes that can get dirty or stained. 

If you are interested in helping out as a patient please contact Mike Leyden at PMC by September 29th:  mleyden@portermedical.org
