Student Ambassadors not only benefit other students in the program, but also the companies that our students are involved in.

- Inclement Weather Guidance
- In the event of delays, cancellations, or closures due to inclement weather, if a decision is made to cancel classes, it will apply to all classes, both in-person/hybrid and online. While we certainly understand why an instructor teaching an in-person or virtual course might want to offer a class virtually to avoid losing a class period, there are a variety of factors that necessitate the canceling of classes applies to all classes. These factors include access limitations to virtual classes that may result from power outages and other weather-related complications, as well as significant uncertainty and complications for students adjusting to last-minute modality changes.
