Opening New Doors
Last Friday 5/10/19, 14 students from Sweet Briar College concluded their 3 week long Open Doors Seminar. The Open Doors Seminar Program is designed to give students an opportunity to explore the professional opportunities available at the Smithsonian Institution. Students participate in in-depth tours of each of the Smithsonian branches and attend lectures and discussions from Smithsonian staff members about what a career at the Smithsonian looks like. These experiences are supplemented by a professor-led academic component. Through the 3 weeks Open Doors Seminar, students are expected to gain a better understanding of the diverse career opportunities available within the Smithsonian system.
