Lunch and Learn Series
Sometimes it’s better to hear it straight from the source.
That’s exactly why the Lunch and Learn Series is here. We give students an opportunity to connect with community leaders and local employers so they can see how important writing is in the workplace. Come out and take notes, ask questions, exchange business cards, and NETWORK!
Free lunches are provided to all students attending.
