How INTEGRATE 2013 works
On Friday, May 31 we will kick off festivities with an opening general session speaker followed by two concurrent breakout sessions, all located in WVU’s Life Sciences Building on the downtown campus.
After the breakout sessions, we invite attendees to the Attendee Networking Reception at the WVU Alumni Center.
Saturday, June 1 begins with a continental breakfast before the morning general session and breakout sessions. During lunch, we will offer resume review sessions with expert reviewers.
If you’re not familiar with WVU’s downtown campus (and even if you are), join us for a walking tour during the lunch break. The tour will be led by a knowledgeable guide who’ll share interesting facts about the history of our campus. In an online program, this is a unique opportunity to learn more about your University.
After the Saturday breakout sessions conclude, you’re invited to WVU’s Milan Puskar Stadium for the keynote dinner. Don’t miss this opportunity to socialize and enjoy a dynamic keynote speaker.
