The informative week will feature workshops in resume writing and internships, as well as mock interviews and a talk with alumni. Students can also find information regarding graduate programs.

"As a graduating senior in pursuit of a communication studies degree, I am constantly looking for insight on how I can prepare myself for a future in the professional world," said Katelyn Maloy.
