STEM without STRESS: Professional Development Panel

Thursday, April 19, 2018 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Did you ever feel like you were being pressured to succeed? How important was GPA for you? Did you ever experience test-taking anxiety? What did you do to overcome those feelings? What self-care strategies did you practice during college?

The Career Services team has put together the first "STEM without STRESS" program series! This includes two workshops and a panel event which will be held April 19th from 3-5pm in Room 121 at the Career Services building.

This panel event will feature two allied-health professionals (a psychiatric nurse and a family physician), a computer scientist, an engineer from the Nassal Company and a chemist from Lockheed Martin. The moderator will be asking questions regarding their undergraduate journey and how they managed to maintain personal wellness despite academic challenges. While this event is open to all majors, STEM majors are encouraged to attend.

The goal of this program is to provide students with the opportunity to meet with professionals in their fields of interest to learn more about self-care strategies while pursuing their STEM degrees. These events are designed to better prepare students for success while at UCF by fostering academic success and personal wellness.

Like all panel events--Student attendees will have an opportunity to ask their own questions! At the end of the event, students will also have the chance to network with the employers.

We look forward to seeing you! Please preregister for the event ( and make sure to arrive on time to preserve your RSVP. The event will also be streamed through Facebook Live for those unable to attend. You can view the event by following UCF Career Services on Facebook.
