Join us for "Othello" on Saturday, June 9th!

Bring your lawn chair or picnic blanket and join us as we enjoy Shakespeare's "Othello" in Shakespeare Glen, near the St. Louis Art Museum!

We'll provide a picnic dinner, snacks and transportation. This event will cost $12/person. If you want to meet us at the event and pack your own dinner, this event is free!

Festival activities include a nightly Green Show from 6:30 p.m., featuring dancers, singers, musicians, and showcasing local scholars, performances by St. Louis arts institutions, and Shakespeare Festival's Education Touring Ensemble performing a 20-minute adaptation that introduces the characters and plot to children of all ages.

Believed to have been written in approximately 1603, Othello is a play about an outsider who misplaces his trust with cataclysmic results.

Contact Alumni Director Lauren Youse '05 to reserve your spot or for more information.

Helpful Hints from HLGU Career Services

2 Kings 6:17 New International Version (NIV)
And Elisha prayed, "Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see."

According the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE) 2012 Job Outlook Spring Update, employers anticipate hiring more college graduates than last year. Great news!

For those who are unemployed or underemployed, this report may not be reassuring. When faced with trying times, it can be difficult to see options, possibilities, or solutions. Occasionally, we all need "opened eyes!"

Here are a few exercises to try:

  • Daydream. If failure was impossible, what would you do? Are there related opportunities available in your area?

  • Journal. Keep track of your experiences and reflections for one week. Is there a common theme or reoccurring circumstance?

  • Collage. Cut and paste words, picture, etc. on poster board. Don’t think about the final picture. Again, look for common themes.

  • Walk. What catches your attention? Why?

  • Interview. Informational interviewing can be a very helpful exercise. Search the web for instructions.

  • Ask. Let others share what you may be missing about yourself, jobs, etc.

  • Visit. Local career centers.

  • Pray. God’s specialty and pleasure is “opening eyes.”
