Student Secret Weapons, Uncommon Wisdom for Uncommon Success as a Student

Many students are struggling to find work that is interesting and rewarding after they graduate. You can’t follow the same well-worn path of “getting good grades and a degree” and expect different results. In fact, the most of the value and opportunities that a university has to offer lie outside of the classroom.
In this talk, U of U Alumni Kyle Gray will describe some unique strategies students can use to discover their passion, connect with mentors and leverage your university's resources to build a thriving business or personal brand before you graduate.
