  2. World Class Thinkers & Leaders
  3. Good Scholarships!

One more great reason to attend, particularly for students and alumni: the Career Fair on Wednesday, April 10. The fair is free and requires no advance registration (you can sign up online to have your résumé viewed by participating companies in advance). More than 50 major Upper-Midwest employers will be in attendance.  Coaching from leading résumé, career management and human resource experts will also be provided free at the  Career Services Center.
