Construction begins on Brough Commons this week
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“When students enter Brough Dining Hall this week, they won't see the usual dessert bar, friendly faces and cereal line. Instead, they now are greeted by wooden beams, black tarps and a sign that reads "Brough - an exciting new look is coming … please pardon the disruption.”

Careers can start at home
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“Job openings for college graduates are in short supply. Many companies that employ thousands of Arkansas workers around the state are cutting jobs to save money.
The UA, one of the top five employers in Northwest Arkansas, however, will not cut jobs. In fact, the UA is still hiring, employment director Beth Arbuthnot said.”

by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“Students who graduate next month will enter a job market fully feeling the effects of the recession, and experts say the end is not near. If the financial system does not recover soon, the recession might last beyond the end of the year, a UA economics professor said.”

by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“Twenty-first century office employees can work from almost anywhere, from home or a houseboat - dressed in housecoat and slippers, casual to business suit or for best comfort. These rewards come with telecommuting as a virtual employee.

Meet Bugsy - also known as the 'Dickson Street dog'
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“If you decide to spend some time on Dickson Street, you might expect to find shopping, restaurants and bars, but what you might not expect is Bugsy, the top dog of Dickson Street.
Bugsy spends most of his time guarding Flying Possum Leather, a store specializing in handcrafted acoustic and leather guitar straps, but he also makes social trips around Dickson with his owner, Bruce Walker.”

A suitable look lands the job
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“It wasn't so long ago that many felt secure in their financial situations - and it showed. Khakis and a button down, sans tie, became the uniform of the confident professional. But moods have changed and, although business casual is still the trend for many, standing out requires one's appearance to speak volumes.”

The Clintons' first house now a history-packed museum near campus
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“They were former UA faculty members and shared their first home on California Drive, a street directly off of the UA campus.
It sounds like it could be the ordinary lives of a lot of UA faculty, except that he was the 42nd president of the United States and she was the second woman to be the U.”

Buying back books: UA students decide where to sell used textbooks for best price
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“Finding the most reasonably priced textbooks can be difficult, but for UA students, the best option is to shop around before making a final sale.
Many bookstores offer similar buyback pricing - typically 50 percent of the book's original value - if the book will continue to be used on campus.”

Generation 'Look at Me' caught in a catch-22
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“It's that time of year. Finals again. The library is so full its like hunting season in the jungle trying to get a computer. I was actually attacked by a woman the other day. Everyone is so stressed you can almost see cartoon bubbles over their heads with exclamation and question marks.”

Study abroad expands horizons as well as career options
by The Traveler
Jan 01, 2018
“Study abroad experience makes a student stand out among other candidates on a resume and in a job interview.
Study abroad programs attract students for not only gaining academic outcomes but also improving their personal skills such as broad global awareness, independency, self-reliance and diversity tolerance, which employers look for as global work force.”
