First year students are encouraged to attend the career fair and this year, with over 30 organizations interested in hiring first and second year students for internships, the Career Center is offering resources directly geared towards freshmen for them to have a very meaningful experience at the Expo.

The IMPACT instructor team includes a personal coach and a padded attacker, offering a supportive environment and a chance to experience full-force physical techniques while adrenaline is high and fine motor skills are low (as is likely to be the case in a real-life emergency.)

Some words are heard —"anthropological," "economy," "prices,"— but his diction is so fast that his sentences are literally incomprehensible to the average ears.
