The Centers of Excellence (COE) help our students connect their work in the classroom in a practical way through three-week supervised internships and a capstone project. Mentoring a student as an intern will help our current students to gain confidence and skills in an area they would like to explore in the future. Becoming a COE mentor is an excellent way to connect with a student and share your expertise.
Each October, the College Placement Office invites colleges and universities from across the United States to our annual College Fair. Some schools are unable to send representatives but will provide materials and offer the opportunity for an alumna/us to represent their alma mater at the fair.
