Claremont Colleges Information Session

Posted by heo

The Claremont Colleges

We invite you, your students and their families to learn more about The Claremont Colleges – Claremont McKennaHarvey MuddPitzerPomona, and Scripps Colleges – a consortium of five undergraduate institutions located in one square mile in sunny Claremont, California. Our distinct colleges, also known as the “5Cs”, are united by a spirit of collaboration and connectivity that influences academics, athletics, and student life. With shared resources across the consortium, like the Claremont Colleges Library and over 250 clubs and organizations, students at the “5Cs” experience the best of both worlds: the ability to attend a small, tightly focused college while also enjoying the benefits of a larger college or university.

Join us for our upcoming virtual information session to learn more about both our shared and institutionally unique approaches to a liberal arts education. Please forward this invitation to your students and families!

Thursday, July 8 at 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time
5C Information Session
This session provides an overview of the Claremont Colleges and an introductory understanding of each individual college. For more detailed information about each college please visit their respective websites.


Registration closes 24 hours before the event start time. Event details and Zoom link information will be emailed to you after registration. There is a 1,000 person limit for the event and there will be a waitlist should you register after capacity is reached. Once you are placed on the waitlist you will be notified via e-mail if space becomes available.

Please note:
 if your students are on the mailing list for multiple Claremont Colleges, they may receive this invitation more than once. They only need to register once for the virtual event.

We look forward to seeing you online!

Regards,
The Claremont Colleges

This summer, Hotel ICON proudly presents “The Academy”, a boundless concept space where people inspire people to let ideas flow and synergise.

 

Facilitating modern designed venues, The Academy houses three new event options for any occasion, including Bistro 1979, a retro-themed restaurant that provides an array of authentic Western and Chinese dishes designed by the hotel’s award-winning culinary team; Vinoteca Lab, a studio for workshops and classroom-style events; and Food Lab Kitchen, a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen, ideal for any kind of cooking classes.

 

At the Academy, our teachers are all certified trainers and professional mixologists and chefs from Thailand, India, Malaysia and Hong Kong, they will help students to learn new cooking skills or build on what they already know. This empowers them to acquire the knowledge and confidence they need to establish lifetime skills and successful careers in hospitality.

 

I would like to introduce you to three summer activity packages including Kitchen Confidence, MasterChef Cooking Class and Mixology Class (mocktails). Students not only can take the recipe and the dish or cake home but also an official certificate from Hotel ICON.

Study Medicine in the UK and USA with SGU: Webinar 1st July

Posted by heo

Study Medicine in the UK and USA with
St. George’s University

Join St. George’s University School of Medicine and Medical Doorway during this virtual event on 1st July, 2021 for students looking for a future in medicine with entry into SGU’s 5-year MD program. Guest speaker Dr. James Coey, Course Director, Associate Chair and Associate Professor in Anatomy at St. George’s University in partnership with Northumbria University, will cover academics, admissions, and scholarships. We will also hear from SGU Alumna Dr. Tatum Jackson, MD ’20, who will share how SGU has helped shape her success.

The five-year medical degree program at St. George’s University, the premier Caribbean medical school, is designed specifically for students with Advanced Level or International Baccalaureate credentials who have a desire to become a doctor. SGU students have the opportunity to begin their medical education with SGU in Grenada, the United Kingdom, or India, with the three paths featuring the same curriculum and provide a strong foundation for SGU’s future physicians. The last two years have the option of doing clinical rotations either in the US or the UK. St. George’s University is truly an international institution and has contributed over 18,000 physicians to the global physician workforce, with students, graduates, and faculty from over 150 countries. They have practiced in every state in the US, as well as in more than 50 countries.

St. George’s University has been providing the world with highly trained doctors for more than 40 years. Founded as an independent School of Medicine in 1976, SGU pioneered the concept of international medical education. No other medical school in the world provides more new doctors to the US healthcare system*.

Students joining this virtual information session will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A and will hear about the next steps of the application process and how they can start their journey to becoming a doctor in August 2021 with the Grenada pathway, or September 2021 when choosing the UK or India pathways.

*Data as of April 2021

We would be delighted for you to join us on 1st July from 11am (UK) for this unique opportunity to ask questions direct to the Medial Doorway team and St. George’s University in Grenada.
