Events and Workshops
Below is the programming schedule for the Spring 2015 programs available to all ACE Scholars; details will be sent out via e-mail. ACE Programming is a mixture of fun and educational events that take a variety of formats, from interactive workshops, meetings, lectures, speaker panels, and retreats.
You will note that there are different "tracks" this year that cater to different services that ACE provides: Academic Success, Career Prep, Financial Literacy, Grad School Prep, and The Real World. Remember it is mandatory for each ACE Scholar to attend at least one workshop each semester.
Feel free to attend as many workshops as you'd like - if you attend 3 workshops on one specific track (remember, there were some in the Fall 2014 semester), you'll be honored with a certificate at the end of the year.
