As a senior student, the following guide will help you explore different ways to make the most of your time at Viterbo:

  • If planning on continuing your education, start graduate school applications early in the fall semester.
  • Spend some time identifying the knowledge, skills, unique qualities, and experiences you bring to job search.  Think about how you want to market yourself.
