Grit & Greatness
Career Month Workshop
Thursday, April 11, 2019 · Noon - 1 PM
Listen to and engage with recent UMBC alums who successfully and creatively navigated through the process of choosing a major. Some of these alums were exploratory or "undecided" about their options when they began. Others made strategic transitions from their first majors into other programs that led them to graduation - great careers and post-graduate opportunities. Panel members will share their stories about qualities and philosophies that propelled them forward through grit to greatness!
