Class of ‘21 Sophomore Summit

Advice, stories, and expertise from a panel of young alumni

Being a college student and in particular, a sophomore, can be one of the most exciting and perplexing times of your life. As you contemplate your future, there are more questions than answers. Human Ecology young alumni will join you virtually for the Sophomore Summit to answer questions you’re facing today, about how they – 

  • Aligned their interests and passions to a career
  • Decided on a career, and when!
  • Built relationships outside the campus walls
  • Explained Human Ecology to recruiters
  • Prepared for interviews and followed-up afterwards
  • Found the right internships, planned for their first job
  • Got to where they are today

We will also cover other topics and answer your questions around –

  • Taking a gap year
  • Applying to graduate, medical, law school
  • What their jobs look like on a day-to-day basis 

Bring your curiosity and questions to this event – just for the class of 2021!
