7 – 9 p.m. 7th Annual Health Professions Open House | Virtual

The Health Professions Advising Office welcomes you to the 2021-2022 academic year! Last fall, our 6th Annual, 1st Virtual Open House was so very successful, we plan to connect remotely again during Homecoming Week ahead of President Hurd’s Inauguration. Please consider being among our faithful alumni sharing insight and lively conversation with our current students interested in health professions careers of all kinds. As we did last year, a virtual social hour will follow the event. For alumni able to get to campus, our offices at Scott Hall will be truly open during Homecoming morning, so check in and say hello!
