We’ll kick off this event with three TEDx-style presentations then break into smaller groups with 20 different alumni.

This event is NOT just for seniors. This is an incredible opportunity for all students. This will help you decide on a major, on what classes to take, how to prioritize internship opportunities, and promises to help you make the most of your time at Northland.
