Premier Events

Every year, the Office of Career Services hosts two class-wide conferences: Senior Transitions and Sophomore Planning Conference

Sophomore Planning

Sophomore Planning is Tuesday, October 14th for members of the sophomore class. Registration required in Career Connection.

Goals

  • to ensure sophomores have the information they need to accomplish their personal goals, such as obtaining an internship, studying abroad or participating in the SURE program
  • to provide resources and information to encourage sophomores to become engaged beyond the classroom in ways they may not have considered
  • to have students pause, to make thoughtful decisions about how to best prepare for their post-graduate goals (regardless of how clear or unclear those goals may be)
You will select three sessions from the list below:                                                                              
Alumni Mentors & Networking: First Steps Internships
