What is an Expedition?
Expeditions are trips organized by the university designed to assist students in finding an internship or career in various cities across the country. They are intended to provide students an opportunity to network and meet with contacts from companies in that city. Students will also be introduced to LDS resources such as members, wards, institute, temple location, etc.
Why Should Students Attend?
The main purpose is to provide students with interview and network opportunities. It is our hope that at least 30% of the students attending will receive a job or internship offer.
Who Can Attend?
All students are welcome to apply but attendance depends on acceptance. The faculty and ADC leads determine which candidates will attend.
How much do expeditions cost?
Students are expected to pay 40% of the total cost. This generally falls between $200-$500. This amount will be charged to your student account upon acceptance. All other incidentals including meals and entertainment will be the student's responsibility. If you withdraw after plane tickets are purchased, you will be charged the full price of the ticket.
How do I learn more?
Most of the expeditions occur in the Fall semester in common cities such as New York, Chicago, San Jose, Phoenix and Seattle. To find out specifics on upcoming expeditions, please contact your department ADC or check on Career Navigator.
