What's a Meet-up?

Are you tired of boring, old workshops with some person going on and on about how you should get a job, do an internship, or go to grad school?

We sure are! That's why we have changed our presentation style to better fit the student's needs and interests. What used to be a workshop is now a meet-up, where you will be able to ask your questions and figure out your plan for graduate school, internship and job searches, and LinkedIn. These meet-ups will be tailored to meet the needs of the attendees, so come with questions and leave with confidence.

Come to our first Meet-up of the semester - Grad School Planning - Thursday, Sept. 10 at 3:30 p.m. in the Innovation Station.

The Grad School Planning Meet-up is for anyone considering graduate school.
