First Leap is a Career Exploration and preparation program that is available for all first-year students to discover more about a field of interest. It combines both classroom and professional site observation/informational interview based on each student’s academic interest.

The first day and last day are spent in the classroom, while the other two days are for student observations/informational interviews. The classroom portion involves interactive exercises and guest speakers in an effort to engage students in career preparation and exploration process. We also spend a significant amount of time preparing students for their site visits/informational interviews.

The program is highly competitive and each of the 25 students admitted has been through an interview process to ensure they are a good fit and committed to a four-day experience.

If you RSVP and plan on committing to this program, please make sure to complete the three required commitment meetings for the program by scheduling your first appointment (First Leap: Initial Session) with Consiglia Intile on Handshake.
