SC State University's Career Center Presents Graduate and Professional Schools Day

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

In an already struggling economy, it is almost a necessity to pursue further education in order to compete with the current workforce. That is why SC State University’s Career Center is hosting its annual Graduate and Professional Schools Day. Graduate and Professional Schools Day will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Garnet and Blue Room of the K.W. Green Student Center, located on the campus of SC State University.

This year’s theme for Graduate and Professional Schools Day will be: “Building the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Graduates.” According to Joseph Thomas, interim director for the Career Center, building the foundation is significant, and Graduate and Professional Schools Day is extremely beneficial to our students and to their career advancement.

“Our goal for Graduate and Professional Schools Day is to attract students, especially current students who may be pondering attending graduate school but have not yet decided which institution will best represent their career endeavors,” says Thomas. “Now, these students can learn more about these schools and take the time to make wise decisions on which University will best reflect their chosen career path.”

Students will have the opportunity to peruse admissions materials and the majors that are offered at nearly 40 graduate and professional schools. The following will be in attendance:
