We, as advisors, often talk to students about ways that they can enhance their education and develop not only as a student, but as a person. It is so important for students to learn outside the classroom, as well as, in the classroom and it helps you feel connected to Seattle University. There are many clubs and organizations in Albers for students to get involved with and develop leadership and networking skills. Another good way to expand your network and learn from people in the business industry is the Albers Executive Speaker Series. The Albers Placement Center is a great resource for students to learn about careers, networking experience and participate in mock interviews. They have a lot of events and workshops this fall to prepare and connect you to the business world. It's easy to let the quarter pass by, but we really encourage you to take some time and get involved with a club or attend one of the events highlighted below!
