There will be a FREE buss provided by the College of Business (COB).  COB students have first priority for seats on the bus. You may sign up for a seat on the bus AFTER you receive your Registration Confirmation email. Sign up in the CDC (WA 209):

  • COB student sign up: Wed., Jan. 19 – Fri., Feb. 11, 2011.
  • Non-COB student sign up on the ALTERNATE list: Wed., Jan. 19 – Fri., Feb. 11, 2011.

As of Mon., Feb. 14, any seats not claimed by COB students will be given to the students on the alternate list in the order they signed up. These students will be contacted by email. Therefore, the earlier you register for the Job and Internship Fair, the better chance you have at getting a seat on the bus.
