Attend a Training or Event

As a student, you have access to many events throughout the school year. We encourage you to attend these, and enhance your academic skills, while also gaining friends from other disciplines. All upcoming events can be seen here, and we ask that you RSVP for each event you attend, so that we can plan on catering accordingly. Thank you! We’ll see you soon.
