Graduate Education Series
October 16 – 18, 2017

The Career Resource Center and the UF Graduate School are partnering to bring you Graduate Education Series. On October 18, we will have the Beyond the Swamp Fair, which will bring departments from out-of-state colleges. If you would prefer to stay in the swamp, we’ll have our Gator Graduate Programs Fair on October 31.

This event is open to UF Students and Alumni only. For further questions, contact our Career Events staff at (352) 273-2331 or crcfairs@crc.ufl.edu.
