Power Onward: Create Your Own Path to Success
April 2 @ 1:00 pm
What does success mean to you? Getting the right job and the right company? The right degree? Join us for an insightful and engaging conversation with Jaime Casap, former Google Education Evangelist, who will share his own experiences as a first-generation college student.
Focusing on the importance of expanding your network while you are in college, Jaime will lead a “think tank” style discussion focusing on how college students today can create their own experiences and recognize the power of their potential.
