This year, we sang in the IUK concert band's Halloween concert, participated in an on campus coffee shop, and joined with freshman in a flash-mob during the holiday season. Students may participate in choir as an activity, and they can take choir as a class for credit. During the fall semester, we formed a small group, the IUK Harmonics.

Students will be asked to write down their experience in choir and other musical activities. There will be a room available to warm up.

AHLEF

 

Academic Scholarships

 

The application deadline is 11:59 PM on May 1, 2016!

Apply online at: www.AHLEF.org

Am I eligible?

AH&LEF offers a wide array of scholarship opportunities - available to incoming freshman through graduate students. Some are earmarked specifically for current hotel employees and others for minorities. A few have minimum GPA requirements, while others are open to full or part-time students. All require enrollment in a hospitality management degree program.

Is it worth my time?
More than $860,000 is budgeted in 2016 to award to a few hundred hospitality management students. Scholarships range from $500 to $6,000, and unlike a loan, that money never needs to be paid back. It only takes a few minutes to apply. Wouldn't you say it's worth your time?

How will I be evaluated?
We don't judge applications solely based on GPA or financial need. We also review academics, hospitality work experience, extracurricular/professional activities, and honors, as well as personal attributes that you outline in your essay.

AH&LEF not only helps pay for school - we help build your career.
Scholarship recipients receive a free year of student membership to the American Hotel & Lodging Association. Additionally, our alumni can join a community that helps them network, advance, and gain visibility in the industry. And lastly, an AH&LEF scholarship will look great on your resume and shows you have earned recognition from the industry.

Studies have shown there are countless ways a veterinary practice can benefit from understanding human psychology. Key areas of psychology that directly link to the well-being of pets include proper education for human caregivers on pet health maintenance, managing pet illness, and end-of-life care. As a future veterinarian, how will you incorporate human psychology into your practice? What do you feel will be the biggest challenge when interacting with human caregivers?

Essay 2

A recent pattern in the veterinarian industry is the corporate buy-out of individual practices and recruitment to work in corporate veterinary hospitals.

Would you want to work in a corporate-owned animal hospital? Why or why not?
