No need to wait until entering the workforce to learn invaluable “life skills” such as networking, interviewing, or navigating challenges in the workplace. Our coach-led workshops are designed to give LSA students out-of-the-classroom learning experiences so you can get where you need to go.
Some of these Fall workshops below are accompanied with online Canvas modules that are meant to be completed before attending the live workshop. Workshops are open to all LSA undergrads who RSVP, but space is limited. RSVP early to avoid the waitlist.
