The College & Career Center has moved!

Check Daily Notices to learn about college recruiter visits, college application workshops, military recruiters and presentations, scholarship opportunities, and more. 
 
Enhancing Communications
In an effort to declutter your inbox, the Communications Office is modifying how it delivers information to you. This trial comes after two focus group discussions with members of SAB and other students. Sunday Reminder like this one will continue as usual, providing a synopsis of the week ahead with information targeted to larger audiences. 
 
During this trial, however, Daily Notices will no longer be emailed to students every day. You provided us feedback that indicates we are filling your inbox too much and that you aren’t reading this information as often as we’d like. There is, however, an interest in still seeing the information, just in a less direct way of delivery.
 
Daily Notices will be the featured element on your MyNFA student portal, and it’ll be updated as necessary during the week. This will continue to include more detailed information about clubs, activities, college visits and more. We will drive additional reminders to portal access through digital signage and social media tools.
