The semester has been crazy busy but also crazy good. We launched a ton of new, fun initiatives – the most notable of which would be our very own version of USF Tampa’s leadership series (featured at FloridaACE 2016) wherein students are paid for completing a series of sessions presented by executive leadership at a prominent organization. Also, our employer outreach has been in overdrive lately thanks to our Career Advising team getting into a groove and working closer with the rest of Career Services. And the students! Goodness, they never cease to amaze me. 🙂 Just met a young gun who “retired” from playing chess at 18 because he won a national championship and “got bored.” Ha!
