career speaker series
In this seminar series, Vidya Vikas alumni and young professionals give overview and advice about various professions (medicine, law, engineering, architecture, teaching, cybersecurity, etc.). Topics covered in the seminar include, an overview of the profession, which courses to take, universities to consider, internships, etc.
The first seminar of the series (in Sept.) is dedicated to “Strategizing for College” where students and parents get a better understanding of academic and non-academic factors that are important for college admissions. In January (first/second Sunday), current and past students represent their universities at “College Booths” and answer questions about academic programs, life on campus, food options for vegetarians, which teachers/classes are good, etc. This seminar series meets every third Sunday of the month (Sept. – Apr.), except Jan. when we meet on the first or the second day, while college students are in town.
