Backpack to Briefcase Conference Featured

The Backpack to Briefcase networking event held at the Colleges was one of the featured programs focusing on adult life skills in the May 9 Democrat and Chronicle story titled Colleges introduce 'Real World 101'. The article quoted Renee Conklin ’02 and Brandi Baran, career services coordinator. “These things aren't really addressed in the classroom,” said Conklin. The concept has spread as the focus of college career centers has evolved, Baran said. “We're just doing more to branch out, help students be successful.”
