At this session you’ll participate in a short activity that will help you explore your interests and strengths and how they can help you find engagement opportunities that are a good fit for you (such as student groups, volunteering, research, and more) by using the Engage search tool! The information from this activity will then be used to explore majors and careers through iseek, a comprehensive MN website about careers. This interactive workshop will give you insight into who you are and how you can find a major through using your strengths and getting engaged at the U!
