Wrapping Up the Fall 2020 SPSIA Success Series


Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs hosted their SPSIA Success Series virtually throughout the span of the fall 2020 semester. With over half a dozen different workshops, this series provided students with access to learn more about the resources, opportunities and programs offered at the school. Workshop topics ranged from how to succeed in a remote learning environment, to applying and looking for internships, to honors research.
