Professional Associations

You can find professional associations that support almost any industry. Joining a professional association is a great way to gain real-world insights, make valuable connections with experts (maybe even your future boss!), and gain outside-the-classroom experience. Professional associations can give you access to useful networks, and most professional associations offer substantial discounts for students.

Exploring All the Options

“I didn’t know I wanted to study biology until halfway through my career at SPU. I visited the Center for Career and Calling website many times during my sophomore year, and it was a career counselor who helped me make my final decision to major in Ecology. She told me that I lit up when talking about the program and seemed more enthusiastic about it than anything else. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to explore all my options.”
