University of Florida and Scorpio Celebrate Career Connections Center with Ribbon Cutting

After $10 million and more than a year of renovation, the Career Connections Center at the University of Florida celebrated its official opening in a grand way on September 18.

Renovations had been in the works for about five years, from fundraising to designing to constructing.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, the career center worked with 25,000 students and connected students with employers nearly 13,000 times.

“To be one of the Top Ten Public Universities in the country, we have to offer career services that reflect our commitment to students and alumni,” said President Fuchs.

The renovated center includes engagement rooms for workshops and programs, interview rooms for employers and students to use and nooks along walls and in corners for students to use regardless of whether they need career advice at the time.

One of the highlighted features of the Career Connections Center is the Gator Career Closet, located on the ground floor. It is designed to look like a boutique. There, students can borrow professional clothing for interviews, meetings and other networking opportunities. President Fuchs borrowed a tie from the Career Closet before making his appearance at the event. “It is a really nice tie. I may have to keep it,” he remarked.

After the official ribbon-cutting took place, attendees gathered in the space and enjoyed a tour of the new facility and food and drink, while learning about the many services the Career Connection Center provides.
