Road Trip to ZSC 2020

Every year we host several hundred students on campus for a career exploration opportunity. This year’s event will be a virtual event that will help students begin their educational journey in any field at ZSC! The virtual event kicked off Monday, November 2, with a Facebook Live. Regardless of their path, students can explore career paths by completing an online scavenger hunt through the videos. The event will wrap up on Monday, November 30, with a Facebook Live at 8:30 AM where individual prizes AND a pizza party for the three schools with the most participants will be awarded.
