Lunch and Learn Opportunity for upperclassmen

Debi Ernest from the Port Warwick Foundation will be coming on campus to talk about her professional journey. As someone with a less traditional career path, she has a lot of valuable advice for students. Come ask her any questions you have about entering the working world!

This is a fantastic professional development opportunity for students thinking about careers in management, communications, PR, non-profit, or marketing.

Please RSVP here for the event on Tuesday, January 26th at 12:20PM.

Open Office Hours - Today through Friday

Come stop by the office anytime Wednesday through Friday (8am-5pm)! Who invites speakers to campus? Why Passports? Is service really important if I have a job?

We want to hear your thoughts about the Program and answer any questions you might have.

Calling ALL Captains!

We need YOUR help! The Fellowettes are getting ready to begin a new project of interviewing students, staff, and faculty about reasons why they love CNU and/or PLP. If you would like to share your story with us to be featured on the Preslead social media accounts or videos for prospective CNU students, please fill out this Google Form. Thanks!

Congrats to all the new Panhellenic women!

We are so excited for each of you as you start of this new journey. We loved watching you run home this past weekend!
