What is Career Night?

Career Night is an annual event held in early November each year that brings together students who have an interest in agriculture, health, environment, and related fields with employers in these fields. The event provides students with an opportunity to learn about career options in the field of study that they are pursuing or considering. In addition, The Center for Career Development, Education Abroad Office, and Graduate School send representatives who are available to talk with students.
