Discover yourself and your future opportunities

As a future student, we want you to know that we have the resources to help you explore your personal and career goals. We can help you plan for an exhilarating and innovative future as you expand your skills, interests, and values and discover future opportunities.

Not sure what to study or what career to pursue?

It's okay (and very common amongst students) to be unsure about your future and how to connect academic goals to a career path or how to connect career goals to an academic plan. Fortunately, Career Connections and our campus experts will help you explore academic programs and potential careers in that field, so you pick the program that’s right for you.
