CSM/ASM Women's Networking Group Upcoming Events
Mark your calendar for March 21st and April 14th
If you know of anyone who would be interested in coming out to speak or would like to host a site tour, please have them contact Rochelle Stapp.
March 21st – Industry Speaker
For our speaker, we have Andrew Hunkins, Senior Project Manager, from Corna Kokosing. Andrew will be coming out to discuss what Pull Planning is while also having a hands on exercise that will allow for students to gain knowledge on what all goes in to a successful schedule.

Unlike traditional scheduling, pull planning allows for the dates and time duration to be open to more than just a few. Subcontractors are invited to come out from all trades to all for them to create their own schedule. This allows for subcontractors to see what other trades will be going on and allows for them to see conflicts before they arise.

April 18th – Site Tour
The site tour will be at the College of Dentistry Building at Postle Hall, which is currently undergoing a $95 Million renovation and addition to the existing building. We will do networking at 5:30 PM and the presentation will start at 6:00 PM and go until 7:00 PM.
Academic Advising:
Attention CSM Students!
CSM 2600 Safety Class limited enrollment
For future semesters, enrollment in CSM 2600 will be limited to a maximum of 40 students. Instructors will no longer be allowed to let more students into the class should it reach capacity. If you need to take the safety course, it is recommended that you sign up as soon as your enrollment appointment begins!
Enrollment Appointments Now Available to View!
You should have received an email from the Registrar with your summer and autumn enrollment dates. You can also check the right side of your Buckeye Link by clicking “details” under “Enrollment Information” to see when you can schedule.

“Financial Responsibility Statement”  locks have now been placed on student accounts. Students must complete this requirement prior to scheduling for summer and autumn. To complete this, log in to Buckeye Link and click “Financial Responsibility Statement” on the right side. This should take less than one minute of your time, but must be done before you are free to schedule.

ASM and CSM students , remember that all Juniors and Seniors will have a hold placed on their account that can only be removed by their faculty advisor. Please email your faculty advisor to set up an appointment regarding scheduling in order to have this hold removed BEFORE your window opens.   If you do not have a faculty advisor, you need to schedule an appointment with LaShanda to have one assigned to you.
