Off Campus Opportunities

Updated 5/20
* With the cancellation of many campus tours and outreach events many universities are shifting to virtual tours and online outreach efforts. Please visit the websites of these universities to see all they are doing. In addition, make sure to read all correspondences received via email and check student portals for deadlines, to-do lists, and/or next steps. You have worked too hard to jeopardize admittance due to deadlines. 
Many campus offices are closed but they are checking emails. Now more than ever you need to be checking emails and looking to university websites as they are making updates frequently. 
See below for student opportunities off-campus. Below you will find links to college campus visits, internships, summer opportunities, and more. Please check back regularly for updates.
