Champ Chats Series

Every Thursday, one of our Admission Counselors will be joined by a special guest from campus who will highlight their area of expertise.

Our guests are selected based on the questions our Admission staff are hearing from prospective students and families at any given time throughout the admission cycle. This may include representatives from our Financial Aid office, coaches from our Career Collaborative, or advisors from our Academic Coaching team.

Majors & Concentrations

We've developed our career-focused degree program in collaboration with employers to ensure that you possess the knowledge, skills, and experience you need to excel in your chosen career.
