Why past EIP participants think you should participate:

"I have gotten more out of this FREE program than many of the classes that I have paid to take.” Alumni

"This program makes you think about who you are and how you handle things. The professional side of you is enhanced to make a better you." Senior studying social work

"To gain a mastery of various professional subjects and go above curriculum requirements." Alumni

"I would recommend this program to others because it shows through your resume that you are dedicated to developing professional skills for the workplace and that you are not just a blank slate that has no experience." Senior studying sociology

"Opens your eyes to how networking is everywhere!" Alumni

"Simply getting good grades in classes is not enough to make you marketable or hire-able; employers want to know that you will blend well with the company's culture, get along with coworkers, and be professional in all parts of your work. I would recommend EIP to all students . . . because it is a great soft skill development tool and provides invaluable advice for the 'real world.'" Alumni
