Students exposed to STEM careers

The Career Center at Sacramento State organized the first STEMposium: Career Awareness and Exploration event on Monday, Nov. 23 in the University Union.

Students rotated between tables to have small group discussions with professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematical careers, as well as health-related fields.

The emcee of the evening was Chao Vang, a career counselor and experiential learning coordinator with the Career Center.

“This event falls under President Nelsen’s Career Ready Program,” Vang said. “We wanted to expose students to some STEM and health careers they might not have thought of.”

The Career Ready Program was initiated by Nelsen earlier this semester with $100,000 in funds.
