SADHA Donates Around the World

Donations collected by SADHA (the Student American Dental Hygienists Association at NHTI) were utilized last week in Honduras to help fund the work of a non-profit organization called, “Hope World Wide Initiative.”  The volunteer who went down to Honduras was Rachel Whittier, who is the sister-in-law of NHTI senior Dental Hygiene student Amanda Constant.

New Look for Job Board

Have you logged on to NHTI's Job Board lately?  If not -- or if you've never used the Job Board at all -- you're in for a treat!

The Job Board has a whole new look, which makes it easier than ever to access the many useful features it offers.  Sure, the Job Board has a list of jobs.  And not just jobs which local employers have sent in to NHTI, but a searchable database of jobs and internships from all over the country, powered by our affiliation with College Central Network.

But the Job Board also has features designed to help you become a better job hunter.  There are tools like the Resume Builder and Portfolio Central, to assist you in assembling the documents you will need to conduct a more professional job search.  And there is extensive and growing collection of podcasts, videos and text articles with advice on every imaginable facet of career building:  from exploring your interests and choosing a college major, to tips for writing resumes and cover letters, to job hunting advice, interviewing strategies, and much more.

The Job Board is accessible to just about anyone:  students, potential students, employers, alumni, and members of the community.  There is no charge for using the Job Board; all you have to do is sign in and create a free account.

Check out the Job Board -- and its new look! -- at www.collegecentral.com/nhti/.

Bring Your Own Mug!

Save Money and Stop Waste!

The Environmental Action Club continues to partner with Chartwells to provide discounts on coffee and soda for people who bring their own mug or beverage container.  First you have to get a sticker (see below), then fill up and present it to the cashier to pay these discounted prices:

  • Up to 16oz (green sticker) -- pay only $1.00
  • Up to 24oz (red sticker) -- pay only $1.50
  • Up to 32 oz (yellow sticker) -- pay only $2.00

This is a substantial savings and you help reduce resource usage every time you refill!

Students can get the stickers free; faculty and staff pay $0.50.  The Club will be outside the Bistro selling the stickers (and verifying the size of your container) Tuesdays between 11 am and 12:50 pm.  Outside of these times, contact Ruth Heath in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), 271-6484 ext 4200.
