    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.

    The 2017 Career Choices Roundtable was held on Tuesday, February 21 in Magill Commons. The  program schedule appears below, and you can learn more about our speakers by reading out  2017 Speakers' Biographies online.
