2017 CAREER DAY || FEBRUARY 24, 2017 || 10 AM – 4 PM
The College of Architecture and Design will host its annual Career Day on Friday, February 24, 2017. Career Day is an opportunity for employers to engage some of the country’s best and brightest students. All architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and allied industry firms are invited to attend. All profits from Career Day go towards the College of Architecture and Design, its students and student organizations.
