New Series Explores State and National Economic Challenges
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Public Affairs 530-898-4260
Thia Wolf, director
First Year Experience Program
The Economic Challenges Series will be held in the Bell Memorial Union, room 210, 6–8 p.m. next Wednesday and Thursday. Dessert and refreshments will be available. The events are free and open to the public.
The Principles of Macroanalysis class, taught by Professor Ruben Sargsyan, has been preparing for this event all semester. At the first forum, students will make presentations on state issues, including the economic impact of illegal immigrants, job cuts and their effects on the state’s economy, and the effects of budget cuts on the unemployment rate and the CSU system.
At the second forum, students will make presentations on national topics: the future of social security, the national debt and its effect on college students, the unemployment rate and the sub-prime mortgage crisis.
“This project supports first-year students as they enter college life and the Chico community,” said Thia Wolf, director of First Year Experience. “It also brings together good minds for solution-focused conversations. It will be a positive, solution-oriented experience for everyone, and we hope that many people from the community attend.”
The presenters would like you to RSVP for one or both of the events by calling the FYE Office at 530-898-3705 or e-mailing email@example.com.
