So many activities!

Now is the time to whip out those calendars and day planners folks!

Go ahead… We’ll wait…

Ready? We have SO MANY ACTIVITIES for you to get involved in the upcoming months, so let’s get started!

First up:Β  the PCAL Liberal Arts Career Fair


Recruiters will be looking for professional, poised students and graduates to fill full- and part-time positions, co-op positions, and internships. The career fair is also a great time to explore and discuss career options with recruiters.

See more about preparing and which recruiters have signed-up so far on the website.

Second: the Streamlines conference at Clarke University

This is an especially great follow-up for those of you submitting work to the Student Research Conference here at WKU, but everyone is encouraged to submit.
Plus, you get to travel, which the WKU English Department can help with, by the way.

Third: Student Workshop Series

‘Tis the season for submitting to conferences. Even if you haven’t submitted, these workshops could help you out in your professional endeavors in many ways.
