Student Services Events and Workshops

Upcoming Events

The College of Design Student Services office holds several events throughout the fall, winter, and spring quarters of each academic year. Our events are designed to help connect students with professionals through networking activities and/or are opportunities for students to develop skills related to career pursuit and advancement. Our regular annual events include:

Fall Term

This event is held on the Eugene campus early during fall term. Invited professionals and alumni from a variety of creative and entrepreneurial careers mentor students through activities that include roundtable discussions; portfolio and résumé review; workshops; and best-practice sessions.


Winter Term

Recruitment Fair

Annually in late February

This event is free to all College of Design majors! Professionals who represent firms and organizations in the architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture, construction, engineering, consulting, and planning and public administration fields come for the day to meet students as prospective employees and interns. Firms may elect to hold interviews on site.


How to Get the Most from the Recruitment Fair Workshop

Annually in February, the week prior to the Recruitment Fair
Lawrence Hall
1190 Franklin Boulevard, Eugene

This free, drop-in workshop is for College of Design majors who want to learn more about the Recruitment Fair, how to prepare for it, strategies to target and talk with firms, what employers will be looking for, and more. Students who are majors at any level are encouraged and welcome to come!


Spring Term

Career Symposium

This free event is for students in the School of Architecture & Environment to network and learn from professionals through 50-minute, small group sessions. Invited professionals and alumni from a variety of fields related to the built environment, landscape architecture, historic preservation and planning and public administration mentor students through activities that include roundtable discussions; portfolio and résumé review; workshops; and best-practice sessions.
