Are you an underrepresented or a high-need student?
Do you have a goal to pursue optometry or a health career?
Are you a student who is serious about learning what you need to do now to prepare for a successful career?
If you answered yes to these questions, you are cordially invited to our CSTEP Symposium: Train to Go Pro, on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, from 1:00pm – 5:00pm EST. Come join our staff and faculty, CSTEP students, and OD students for our annual “Train to Go Pro” event. We developed this event, using “go pro” as a theme because we realized that the preparation for athletes who want to “go pro” takes a great deal of preparation, training, and hard work – just like pursuing a health career.
Over the course of the event, you will learn about the application process and best practices from our admissions department, how to adopt the professional mindset, and hear from our keynote speaker, Dr. George E. Jenkins, NY Times bestselling author of “The Pact.” He will discuss his journey and provide you with some insight on how to succeed in your careers.
You will also hear from our panel of underrepresented professional students currently enrolled at SUNY College of Optometry, our Admissions and CSTEP team, our Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, and our VP of Student Affairs.
The event will end with a reception where you’ll have an opportunity to meet and network with our college community and all the speakers in attendance.
