Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month

If you haven’t met with your Career Advisor yet, get your meeting scheduled between now and May at a time that works with your schedule! Your Career Advisor can talk with you about your specialty interests including the timing of when you’ll get connected with Specialty Advisors. Read the Extracurriculars section of the Specialty Guides for two specialties of interest to you.
