Life after K-State information panel presented by American ethnic studies alumni, professors and students

Submitted by Rachel Hare

What do I do after graduation? How do I get into Grad School? What kind of career options are available with a K-State Degree? What is the difference between a resume and a CV? How do I find mentors? How will I pay for everything? What about student debt? Learn the answers to these questions and more at the life after K-State information panel at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, at the Chapman Center for Rural Studies in 112 Leasure Hall. Food will be provided.
