Spring GBM #1: Your Experience Outside of the Classroom

Hey Flying Sams!

Our first GBM of spring quarter has arrived! In addition to some important updates and announcements we have for you guys, we will also be having Dr. Adrian Sanchez from the Princeton Review provide some advice and insight on volunteering and extracurricular activities in relation to a future career in the health care field.

We encourage you guys to ask yourselves what your purpose is behind the volunteer work and extracurricular activities you partake in. Do you enjoy them? Do you not? How can your experiences outside of the classroom shape you and your career path? In turn, how can you make a difference in the activities you do partake in? These are some questions Dr. Adrian Sanchez may address!

Come ready to ask some questions and participate in a discussion!
