We've all heard it before, "BECOME A DOCTOR, LAWYER, or ENGINEER!" Where do
these common aspirations for STEM and Business fields actually stem from?
What do we do if these disciplines aren't areas that we actually want to
pursue? Come and share your experiences with navigating these conversations
with your families, loved ones, and peers. Learn about the strategies and
resources to help you explore major options and career paths that are
intriguing and meaningful to you! OPEN TO ALL MAJORS, DISCIPLINES, AND CLASS
STANDINGS.

Life after your undergraduate career can be ambiguous, but it can also be
exciting! The graduate school process can be overwhelming and complex,
especially for those who identify as first-generation college students. Join
us to explore application advice and tips, and funding opportunities. Whether
you are interested in pursuing research, teaching/education, or professional
school, come through to hear about programs and tools that can support and
guide you to obtaining a Master's or Ph.D.!
