A few things to keep in mind when attending PDC:

  • Contact your RPTA instructor to verify your class is being canceled during the PDC.
  • Students are encouraged to dress in a professional manner and bring a complete resume.
  • Alumni are taking time out of their busy schedules to lead these sessions – students are asked to be respectful and engaged during the sessions.
  • Alumni are happy to talk individually with students after their sessions– students should initiate conversations with the alumni.
