The UCSC Running Club is open to students, staff, and faculty. Runners at all levels are welcome. The club meets Tuesdays at 3 p.m. at the East Field near the sand volleyball court for runs of three to five miles in length on the scenic UCSC trails and Pogonip.

Mentors are still needed for UCSC Job Shadow Day. North Monterey County High School juniors and seniors are coming to campus on May 4. The job shadow program gives students an opportunity to spend time with someone in a professional career and learn about the skills needed for that career and the challenges along the career path.

The job shadow is from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and mentors need to be at Stevenson Dining Hall by 10:15 a.m. to be matched with their students. Mentors are offered a free lunch at the dining hall to give them a chance to chat a while longer with the students, but lunch is not a mandatory part of the program. At least 27 more mentors are needed in order to provide every student with a one-on-one experience. For more information or to participate in this year's job shadow, contact Magdalena Garcia, chancellor's undergraduate intern with the Monterey Bay Educational Consortium, at (831) 460-3004 or via e-mail at magdacia@cats.ucsc.edu.
