2015 Business & Veteran Career Expo

Business & Veteran Career Expo 2015
Business & Veteran Career Expo 2015

Just three weeks into the fall semester, more than 300 School of Business and Veteran students swapped their summer attire for business professional suits and kicked their job search into full gear at the Fall 2015 School of Business & Veteran Career Expo on September 18, 2015.

When planning the Expo, we realized that students would not expect to focus on their job search so early in the semester, but employers’ recruitment cycles start earlier every year.

We were thrilled to see that the students took up the challenge and owned the day!Continue Reading

Top 10 Reasons to Live Off-Campus for at Least a Year During College

1. Having more freedom. Living off-campus gives you more choice of how many friends you would like to live with. Also you can mostly feel free to decide how to decorate your own room.

2. It’s a better place if you want to invite your friends over. Dorms are apparently not the best places to hang out because they are too small. However, off-campus apartments gives you more space.Continue Reading


The Investor Pitch

The iQ program is a series of events that starts slowly, and then accelerates very quickly. It all starts with mentor meetings, followed by the application, and then the final pitch to get accepted to iQ. Then, a moment’s anticipation, then workshops, a flood of new ideas, constant networking, and barely enough time to breathe.
