No matter where you are in your career, there is always room to improve your perception of your work and how you choose to pursue it.

Join us for an inspiring career workshop Thursday, June 28 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. at iMethods (8787 Perimeter Park Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32216), and learn more about "meaningful work" and how you can seek it in your career and future aspirations.

 The UNF Alumni Book Club meets the second Wednesday of each month from 10:00-11:30 am at UNF Alumni Hall, 4804 S. Kernan Boulevard. The parking at Alumni Hall is free; no pass is needed. Light snacks and juices are served.

The group is chaired by Joanne Liberty and open to UNF alumni, their guests and all who are interested in sharing a discussion of the monthly selections or topics. 


July's chosen book is The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and their Quest for Gold at the 1936 Olympics Man Called Ove by James Daniel Brown. This #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany is now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36.”

You can find this highly recommended read at the Jacksonville Public Library as well as online in hard copy, electronic and audio formats.
