November is the time to show thanks

The semester is drawing to a close and Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Everyone is busy right now and feeling overwhelmed with class assignments, tests, graduate school applications, and even job searches, but it is essential to take time to reflect and take stock in our lives. This is the time of year to take a minute and appreciate the people who have been there for us and helped us along the way. Showing gratitude is one of the easiest and most impactful things we can do in our lives, especially our professional lives. Who are you thankful for this year? Who has helped you get to where you are now? Who do you want to continue having in your life? The simple act of telling someone how they have impacted you can make a huge difference and does not have to cost you a penny.


This semester the Career Center is thankful for the employers and students who have utilized our services and participated in our events. Thank you!
