CCPD Welcome Lunch for New Transfers

CCPD Welcome Lunch for New Transfers

The Center for Career & Professional Development crew (including Ichabod and Antoinette, our headless mascots) welcomes new transfer students to Southwestern. Learn how you can get support for your career development! As transfers, your time horizon to next steps after SU is probably shorter than for new first-years, so starting early to explore options, build marketable skills, and develop strategies for moving from “Pirate2Pro”(fessional) is critical to your future success. We look forward to meeting you!
