Opportunities for Current Students

Student Involvement Opportunities:

Students are strongly encouraged to become involved in student organizations, and the community.  This involvement builds leadership skills and networking opportunities, which are highly valuable job skills.

Community Involvement Opportunities:

Volunteering for community organizations provides students with great opportunities for networking within the service industry.  Students are also able to gain experience in different organizations and working with different populations in order to find a career that best fits their interests.  Whether you are able to commit a few hours a week, or a few hours a month, volunteering provides countless benefits to everyone involved! 

Internship and Practicum opportunities:

An internship and/or practicum experience is required for each concentration, which allows students to gain 'real world' application of their skills.
