Bowie Day Program
This program provides students with the opportunity to experience the workplace up close and personal. Employers plan an interactive on-site program where students will be able to:
- Get an insider’s view of your organization
- Meet key personnel and find out skills needed to be successful in the field
- Observe the day-to-day activities of your staff, discuss specific jobs and careers, and sometimes obtain limited hands-on experience
- Take a tour of your facility
- Eat lunch and begin establishing their career network
We will provide transportation to and from your location, as well as attend the event with faculty and students.If you would like to plan a Bowie Day at your site, please complete and submit the Bowie Day registration form.
