EZ Insider (Spooky Edition): It’s Halloween, and Everyone at the Party is an IMC Student

  November 05, 2019        0 Comments

It was a dark and stormy night. IMC discussion posts had been written, replies completed early, and thoughts of assignments due on Monday were being put on hold for the evening. Students gathered dressed in their best costumes to celebrate the only day of the year scarier than the capstone project deadline – Halloween.

At this party, you can tell just by the costume what each student is studying. Because just like Halloween garb, a student’s Area of Emphasis is a reflection of their

At the beginning of your college journey, four years seems like a long time away. That question of what “life is after undergrad” doesn’t need to have an answer. You barely have to have an answer to what your major is for the first year and a half. For my first two years of undergrad, I had no clue where my future was going to take me.
