Career Choices Roundtable is an annual student-led event that stresses a diversity of career paths. Alumni and friends of the University are invited to speak for a few minutes about their unique career path, to take questions from students, and to network with students and faculty at a reception during and after the event. School of Science Peer Mentors organize and host these events and moderate the panels.
