This workshop is sponsored by the Rise Up program for first-generation students, and it is designed for juniors. The summer before senior year is an important time. It is a time for decisions, for example – get a job right after college or complete post-graduate education first? Important deadlines come early in senior year, so students need to be prepared to take advantage of opportunities. In this Workshop we will talk about resources available and strategies students might use for making important decisions. Though this event is sponsored by Rise Up, any Junior is welcome to attend. For further information, contact Faculty Director Sue Astley at sastley@cornellcollege.edu or x4450.
