In April 2015, Post University will celebrate its 125th Anniversary and we want to celebrate with our oldest living graduate. As part of a year-long build-up to our Quasquicentennial, we’re sending out a call to alumni and their families from around the world. If you think you are the oldest living graduate, or a member of your family is, we want to hear from you!

|Jannetty conducts Campus Safety Training|
As a parent there is nothing more precious to me than my children. I would do anything and everything I could to safeguard them.
Times have definitely changed from when I was a student. Columbine forever changed our reality when it comes to school safety. Since then, school violence has become all too prevalent. We are a little more than a year removed from the horrific school shooting in Newtown, and more recently, there was a school shooting in New Mexico. In Connecticut, several colleges have gone into lockdown in the past year due to reported threats on campus. All of these incidents have left people wondering what could be done to stop this from happening again.
I don’t think we can totally prevent school shootings, but I do think there are steps we can take to ensure they are less likely to occur.

Founded in 1890, Post will begin a year-long countdown to its Quasquicentennial this April, in anticipation of an April 2015 celebration of the school’s founding in Waterbury. And we’d like a logo commemorating that milestone, to be used alongside our “Post Tree” logo as we promote anniversary events.
That’s where you come in!

|Affordable Care Act|
While much of the media noise has died down recently, the Affordable Care Act has had more than its share of challenges lately.
No one can forget the initial implementation nightmares, and how websites created so people could register for government healthcare often crashed.
While it’s easy to focus on the problems, it’s more important to acknowledge the monumental changes that have already taken place since the Bill was signed into law in 2010.

Imagine being able to do all your holiday shopping without ever leaving the comfort of your own home, and then having it delivered to your doorstep within 30 minutes – or the same amount of time it takes for a pizza to arrive.
Or let’s say you remember at the last minute that it’s your wedding anniversary and you forgot to get your spouse a gift. There’s no need to worry. You can place an order online and within 30 minutes your problem will be solved, and you’ll be sleeping in your own bed as opposed to the couch.
During a recent 60 Minutes newsmagazine piece. Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos spoke about a new technology they’re developing that would allow drones to deliver small packages to certain homes within 30 minutes.

|Aubrey Latham poses with Schuler and Garafalo after breaking the record|
When Aubrey Latham tore her anterior cruciate ligament after her freshman basketball season she wasn’t sure if her dreams of continuing to play college basketball were over.
Not only did Aubrey persevere, she made Post University women’s basketball history Tuesday night by becoming its all-time leading scorer — surpassing Tracey Garafalo’s career record of 1,510 points.
When Aubrey scored her 14th point Tuesday, the game was stopped, and the capacity crowd at the Drubner Center erupted in a thunderous standing ovation. The feeling inside the gymnasium was electric.

A college degree is important in attaining your career aspirations, but with increased competition for nearly every position out there it’s vital to do something to set yourself apart from everyone else.
That something different could very well be an internship, which provides you vital experience in your major that can differentiate you from the tens of thousands of college graduates across the country entering a flooded job market.
Today’s graduates also are competing with job candidates who have many years of experience and may be unemployed or looking for a career change. There has never been more competition for jobs.
Why do internships matter? Sixty-nine percent of companies with 100 or more employees offered full-time jobs to their interns in 2012. That number is on the increase compared to 2011.
