information sessions, presentations, resume collections or on-campus interviews. We
will assist you with reserving a date and place and will let students know about your
organization. It is also strongly encouraged to attend our annual Career Fair where
you will have access to over 350 students and alumni. For 2023, we will be tentatively
hosting this event on Thursday, March 30.

of candidates or employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin,
sex, age, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, marital, parental, or veteran
