We know that much of your learning will happen outside of the classroom – that’s why 94% of our students participate in some form of experiential learning. From choosing an appropriate internship to studying abroad, your experiential learning will complement your overall academic experience through your participation in StrongPoints.

Here are some of the ways you’ll plan your experiential learning:

  • Seek significant out-of-class experiences, such as research, study abroad, service learning, leadership on campus, community involvement, and/or athletics, that test and enhance your learning and development
  • Weave experiential involvement into career direction and strength development
  • Track your experiences so that you can present a comprehensive picture when it comes time to interview for jobs or graduate school
