Professional LAUNCH Series – Fall 2014

Mondays at 4:30pm – Bostian 3712 and Thursdays at 6pm – Cox 206

** The locations and times listed above are correct! We recently had to move LAUNCH to a larger space in order to accomodate everyone, and therefore some of the LAUNCH flyers that were made earlier in the semester do not reflect these changes. **

Each LAUNCH is repeated on Monday and Thursday and lasts 50 minutes. If you attend 6 sessions you receive a Professional Development Certificate, meal and t-shirt. Sign up in ePack or drop in if space allows. Come to our first LAUNCH session to learn all about this new program or email wjwade@ncsu.edu if you have questions. Also, please take a moment to review our list of frequently asked questions concerning LAUNCH.

LAUNCH is recommended for undergraduate students; however, if you are a graduate student and interested in LAUNCH please contact our office and schedule an appointment.
