Favorite part about Hegi: that it can help, and is ready to help, students and alumni who range from being completely set on a major, to a desire for a change in a career path, to completely clueless on what they would like to do with their lives. I appreciate how the Career Center can prepare and offer advice to students on obtaining careers and internships with its friendly and experience staff members available for drop-ins and ample events to meet them. The people that work there really make the difference and make the Hegi Career Center the place to be!
