Career Camp is for the classes of  2018, 2019, and 2020. The event provides an opportunity to reflect on your summer and college experience and then create an action plan for the following year. You'll choose the sessions right for you throughout the day. You may choose to:

  • Reflect on your previous summer and college experience for future decision making
  • Identify your interests and explore options within those areas
  • Understand how to select and apply to the right graduate, medical or law school
  • Explore career paths and network with industry professionals
  • Build professional skills, such as resume and cover-letter writing, interviewing and networking
  • Connect with an advisor to support you throughout the year
  • Create an individualized action plan for the year ahead

Take advantage of this unique program to clarify your plans and use the year ahead to set your next summer goals.
