Spokane Industry Tour

The ASCC and the College of Arts and Sciences collaborated to provide students with a broad view of a myriad of health-science related career and internship opportunities. Nineteen students took advantage of  the first-ever WSU Health Sciences Industry Tour in Spokane Monday and Tuesday of Spring Break, March 16 and 17. Highlights for those attending included the eye-opening experience of seeing just how many options are out there and the chance to personally network with students and employers. Evaluative outcomes were positive as well–100% agreed or strongly agreed that the tour helped them understand various work cultures and work environments and 89% would recommend the tour to assist other students in their own professional development, job and internship searches.
