OSPGD Goes Virtual

The Office of Student and Post-Graduate Development quickly shifted to online operations as the pandemic shut down in-person classes and operations across the country, helping students find internships and responding quickly to the needs of alumni. OSPGD is a vital resource for all students, now and after graduation, and all the way through their professional life. If your student hasn't yet connected with the helpful people there, he or she should do so soon!

Reminder: Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2020
