The Career Quest Learning Community was developed to provide first-year students at UNC Pembroke with opportunities to explore career and major options in an environment focused on professional and personal growth. The purpose of Career Quest is to guide each student in the community though the process of beginning to develop an individualized, long-term career plan to ensure his/her future career success. Members take UNIV 1000 and UNIV 1050 together.
Business Etiquette Dinner
Each spring semester, we hold a formal etiquette dinner led by a National Certified Business Etiquette Consultant. This very popular event and unique experience provides students with the dining etiquette knowledge required to be confident and successful during business meals and professional encounters.
