STEM Orientation is mandatory to join the STEM program.  You will receive information regarding STEM requirements and benefit.  We will be hosting Orientations this coming week for applicants to qualify for STEM's benefits starting FALL 2015.  This event will be held in the Success Center room PS135.  Below are the sessions time and date:
