Undergraduate Studies Council Hosts Week of Academic Events

Dean Brent Iverson with studentsDuring UGS Week, students gathered to speak candidly with the deans and familiarize themselves with the services offered by the Sanger Learning Center and the Vick Center for Strategic Advising and Career Counseling. “This is my third time helping to organize this event and I always hear participants say, ‘Wow, I didn’t know that!’,” said Alexandria Macias, council vice president. “For me, this is the ultimate success of UGS Week.” The week’s events attracted more than 70 undergraduates.

The focus of UGS Week, hosted by the Undergraduate Studies Council, is to promote School of Undergraduate Studies programs, while giving students opportunities to learn about majors and career paths. “The goal of these events is to bring awareness about resources on campus that not many people encounter on a day to day basis,” said Macias.
