Immersive Experiences Fair
We’ve broken down today’s list of student presentations by type of immersive experience. From research on resistant bacteria to study abroad programs in Belize, the fair will showcase all sorts of student experiences you could explore including in your Drew curriculum/co-curriculum. Note that the bolded presentations below are held live (recordings to be available after the event).
We’ll start with a welcome and instructions from Dr. Jessica Lakin, Drew’s Provost, at 3:00pm EST in the video panel above. Presentations will continue per the schedule below, and will conclude with a thank you and closing from Dr. Daniel Pascoe-Aguilar at 4:50pm EST. All live presentation times are listed in the accordion sections below.
Travel across the Hudson or around the world. Rethink assumptions from a new vantage point. Explore your chosen field—or an entirely different one—in a new context. Connect with other industries and cultures, and to where you want to go from here. The Center for Global Education connects our undergraduate College of Liberal arts, Caspersen School of Graduate Studies and Drew Theological School to the world. Interested in examples? See below:

Conduct research to further explore the science, arts or humanities paths you are considering. Research can help you develop applied transferable skills and self-efficacy, demonstrate specialized knowledge, build a stronger résumé or CV, pursue additional academic achievements or degrees, and expand your network and experience in your fields of interest. Below are live and recorded examples of research experiences:
Leadership of an on-campus club or organization can help develop organizational, leadership, and other skills.

On-campus student employment can be a powerful part of your Launch experience, of your academic, career or service exploration, and of your preparation for life after Drew. Positions vary widely, with approximately 30 Drew departments, offices, and centers offering jobs each year in a diverse range of areas. On-campus student employment is an excellent résumé-ready experience that can develop your transferable skills and prepare you for your future.

Of course, we’d prefer to offer these events in-person on Drew’s campus this Fall. However, just because we’re not physically close to one another doesn’t mean that we’re not still here to support you. If you have any questions about these events, how to participate in them, or anything else Launch related, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
