Overview

Endeavor is a three-day program at the end of Winter Break. Day one focuses on getting to know yourself and your skills through workshops and reflection time with peers and alumni. You will connect with alumni on day two to explore industries of interest. The final day brings everything full circle with a career trek where you will experience a workplace. 

To ensure the safety of our community, Endeavor 2021 will take place virtually. You can expect the same high quality experience.
