SCLA 300: LA Influentials

The breadth of opportunities facing Liberal Arts students can be daunting. The biggest question for most students is, “What are you going to do with your major?” For those who haven’t completely figured it out, don’t panic. SCLA 300 is a lecture/discussion course featuring prominent Liberal Arts alumni who represent a diverse variety of careers including judges, teachers, best-selling authors, business leaders, lawyers, and entrepreneurs. These alumni return to campus to share their stories with students who will soon begin their careers. This class provides students with the unique opportunity to ask candid questions, network with influential alumni, learn about career skills, and get a glimpse at the varied career paths open to students with a Liberal Arts degree.

SCLA 300 is in Beering Hall, Room 2290 and is open to guests as seating allows.
