Watch your UIC email for information to sign up. Must register in advance. Thank you for reading through all of this. Again, I cannot stress enough that you need to be watching your UIC email inbox. I'll be sending out details to all other class levels, but that information will be geared towards internships and co-ops for undergrads.
