Beyond College Workshop

The Workshop Goal is to offer structure for college students to design post-graduation life maps with respect to career pursuits, experiential growth, and personal fulfillment. This 2-session workshop offers a thought-provoking approach for participants to intentionally consider their whole lives beyond college. All participants will walk away with a polished résumé.

Throughout the workshop, participants can expect an open, supportive, empowering and fun small-group environment to flourish in organic ways while building meaningful connections as they inquire, reflect, grow and design their next chapters.

“I would absolutely recommend the Beyond College Workshop to any soon-to-be college graduate! It’s a unique form of support from College Career Services, professors, parents, and other mentors.” -Amanda H., workshop participant
