EDGE Program

A Special M​essage to the EDGE Class of 2020: We know this was not the ending of the year that anyone had ​wanted, much less planned. Nonetheless, we wanted to say just how proud we are of all that you did as EDGE students throughout the year but particularly spring quarter. Not only is it an amazing accomplishment to finish your first year of college and EDGE, but to do it under these circumstances is truly remarkable. Congratulations and we hope to see you around the Career Center soon.

As a token of gratitude for all the work you did this year, check out this newsletter​ filled with quotes from your Team Leaders and Peer Mentors sharing words of gratitude, well wishes, and encouragement as you close this chapter and begin the next.
