Mary seeks job / internship

I am seeking a Graduate Assistantship, paid internship or paid part-time employment with an Arts Organization, Community Garden or Urban Farm. I can provide support and strategy for online media, communications, educational outreach, teaching, leading tours, etc. I am passionate about helping promote access to the arts, especially for women and first generation college students. I am also interested in promoting health education; preventative health care and wellness for traditionally underserved populations. I believe that healing, good health and the arts go hand in hand as they contribute to and benefit everyone in the community.I would like to work with programs that are helping create sustainable communities, preventative health education and or access to the arts. "Creativity and imagination encircle the globe," as Einstein once said and I would add, these attributes contribute to healing individuals, to families and to societies especially when created within a context of community.

Interested in making a quiet, clean, grad student-friendly home?

Hi! I'm a late-twenties female graduate student. I was wondering if any other quiet, clean grad students would be interested in finding a house together? I'm also open to a room for rent in a shared house. I'm hoping for a calm, friendly atmosphere where we feel at home, live healthy lifestyles, might enjoy tending a garden and sometimes cooking together and sharing a meal, are considerate of each other, and live fairly sustainably.  For the house, I would love to be on a direct bus route to PSU or at least within a 10-15 minute drive, but flexible on location otherwise. Quiet area, washer/dryer in the house, and dishwasher if possible are preferred.  Let me know if you're interested in talking more! My budget is roughly $600-$650/month plus utilities and move-in date is flexible. I'd like to find a really good fit. Thanks!Jen

University of Glasgow Photo Project

A former PSU student is looking for individuals to help her out with a Grad project for the University of Glasgow!Very simple, not much time commitment.Shoot her an Email if you are interested!I’m a Thai, and I graduated from Portland State University, Arts: Graphic Design in 2009.  Since then I received an M.Phil. from the Glasgow School of Art  in their Digital Design Studio, and now I am pursuing my Ph.D. at GSA and the University of Glasgow. My profile at the GSA is:,-sawitree/As part of my research into how faces vary by ethnicity, I am collecting frontal and lateral facial photographs of young adults of different ethnotypes.  I have a consent form that was approved by the GSA that individuals may sign, if willing to be photographed, and which explains how the photographs will be used.  The photographs, by the way, are all digitally combined into an ‘average’ face for each ethnicity. Then we are using some image processing techniques to measure the proportions of different faces.  Here are links to the FaceLab project at the University of Glasgow: looking for students connected, but not limited to Philippine, Thai, Indian, Latino, or Japanese student organizations.Her name is Sawitree.Let's see if Switchboard can't help an Alumni out!

Throwing your identity away

Companies and individuals are throwing their identities away right and left without them realizing it. This creates an anti-competitive world. Do you wake up in the morning saying, "I want to be awesome today! I will empower others including myself?".Think before you speak. De-plug before you plug in. Your future depends on you understanding the consequences of what you are leaving behind. Your digital footprint and others around you. You have two ears and one mouth. Empowerment is the future.What's your purpose? "Do unto others as they would have you do unto them"Our dealings are often quick transactions. Treating people as if they were vending machines. The world will slow down and take time to develop quality relationships.We are in a phase of a massive communication breakdown (with little listening going on). Let's all learn together the benefits of work/life balance through design in culture. Trust, transparency, and authenticity in business will come forward.Accessibility with conversations is what we are all after. Open platforms and aspiring communities. The consumer will come first as it's pull versus push going inbound in the future. People are the engine.Please join an amazing opportunity on creative confidence by all. meeting will be outlined before we first meet to get the creativity flowing so you can bring idea creation to it. No idea is a bad idea. New ideas are always in the flow and we build upon them. We set aside preconceived notions and defer judgment.

Helping our community grow has never been easier.
