Spartans, you are part of a dynamic campus community in the heart of one of the most innovative regions in the world! Take advantage of the Spartan Success Series, a student-alumni engagement program featuring an array of career development events providing students and alumni the opportunity to network with alumni experts. Through offering a combination of both on-campus and virtual workshops, panels, and resume review sessions, students and alumni learn to sharpen their skills, build their network, explore career pathways, and acquire a competitive edge to carry into the workforce. 

Our Spring 2017 series is now complete! Thanks to our incredible alumni mentors who volunteered their time to connect with students! Stay tuned for Fall 2018 events to be launched end of summer.
