Aggie Connections and Seminars

Health Professions Advising offers connections and seminars throughout the academic year. Seminars may be health profession specific or general pre-health development. Go here for the full list of all Aggie Connections. See below for Winter Quarter 2019  connections and seminars.

  • On the Road of Happiness in Health Professions


    This seminar will be run as a discussion, talking about stress management and gap years, going over misconceptions in health professions and graduate school, creating a pre-health timeline for the students, answering any questions students may have, introducing HPA, having mentor programs for students to get advice from upperclassmen who have taken the same or similar classes or from the same pre-health path, inviting peer advisers and staff advisers from HPA to talk about any pre-health topics, and incorporating The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin in some of our seminars so that students can be informed about this on-campus event and learn from the book as this book relates closely to our seminar. We will also hold a social event on the last seminar of the quarter such as getting ice-cream from the MU or downtown to conclude this seminar.
