Engage, Explore, Connect

To explore, you must be able to connect with welcoming faculty and students eager to share what they know and love about their majors. We make sure this happens by running exploratory programs throughout the fall and spring semesters.  Share a meal with professors and students and learn about co-op, research, study abroad, possible career paths and so much more.
