A career in academics is a uniquely challenging one, because there are no set hours when one is “on-the-clock” and when one is not. When are we not working? An academic career can take up all of your time, if you allow it to. This is obviously a poor choice. This workshop will discuss ways in which you can find time for your family, for your social life, for your community, for vacation, and for any other demands that you need to fit into your schedule, while maintaining a productive and successful academic career. Work-life balance is crucial to your health and happiness and it will actually make you a more productive member of the academy, too.

Humans versus Vampires
Humans Vs. Vampires (HvsV) is a new version of the popular Humans Vs. Zombies (HvZ) game. However, unlike regular HvZ games, the CSLC's HvsV game will feature foreign language elements to celebrate the fact that Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of the most widely translated texts.
Played like a giant game of tag, the gameplay is simple. Vampires must tag Humans to turn them into Vampires, who then in turn attempt to tag more humans. Humans can defend themselves using Nerf Style blasters or socks.
Over a five- to six-day period, players must survive as they walk from class to class. There are objective-style games or missions each night of the game (capture the flag, scavenger hunt, etc.) which players must try to complete in order to earn rewards to benefit their team. The end of the game culminates in a large final mission.
The gameplay is exhilarating, the people are fun, and there are prizes!
The Fall 2015 game will last from Tuesday, November 3rd through Saturday, November 7th.
To play, *sign up at the link below and attend the MANDATORY Rules Meeting on either Sunday, November 1st or Monday November 2nd at 8:30 p.m. in 131 DeBartolo Hall.
*Students can also sign up in person on 10/28 (Wed) and 10/29 (Thurs) during lunch and dinner hours at the North and South Dining Halls.
Awards will be given out at a Public Reading of Dracula (in multiple languages) on Monday, November 9th at 5pm in LaFortune Ballroom.

The academic job search is a difficult process. It is pitiless and impersonal, governed more by conventional standards than by any specific concerns of the job or the applicants. While this can make the process intimidating, it also means that most academic job interviews—no matter the university or the discipline—are more or less the same. This workshop will take advantage of this predictability, allowing you to understand the interviewing process as well as providing you with strategies to thrive during your interviews.

What are the best practices for improving an already-written article or chapter? How should you make best use of the commentary and feedback you receive from peers and faculty? This workshop will answer these questions while also discussing various online writing tools that can aid in the process.…
