Our Undergraduate Placement Committee under the able leadership of Pam O'Brien have developed a very useful (and smart-looking!) brochure. I know that many of you offer your own students guidance concerning careers and graduate/professional study. Please encourage them to stop by the Advising Center to pick "Your Future: An Undergraduate Timeline to Planning Careers."
