Who We Are

We work to find information on opportunities for you to gain experience outside of the classroom. This could be through paid or unpaid internships, job shadowing, study abroad or other exchanges, or through volunteer and service work. Come meet with us and we can provide you with information on what experiences may work for you and how to get started on the path to your ROAR! 


What We Do

The Career Advising and Experiential Learning office prepares and connects students with experiential opportunties by:

  • Collaborating and coordinating with faculty, staff, and the community to provide
    and promote professional development activities for students
  • Creating new and expanding existing strategic partnerships with local, regional,
    and global stakeholders
  • Advising students on study abroad, internship, volunteer, and seasonal work
  • Fostering multiple avenues for academic, personal, and professional engagement

Why Experiential Learning?

Participating in an experiential opportunity can provide you with career exploration, professional skill building, impressive credentials, and networking opportunities.

In fact, research shows that when hiring managers are looking at resumes of recent college graduates, they view experiences over academic credentials as the most important attributes of a potential employee (Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012).
