Maximizing Winter Break with the Soll Center for Student Opportunity

Friday, November 6, 2020 | 9:00 a.m. PT

Winter break will be here before we know it, and students will no doubt be looking forward to some rest and relaxation. Should they also take advantage to get ready for summer—an experience, internship or full-time hiring? Join Director for Student Opportunities Ursula Diamond and Director of the Robert Day Scholars Program and Scholar Communities Beth Milev '05, for insight into ways students can structure their time that lend themselves to a restorative and productive winter break, and what you can do to help.
