A four day event at VSU designed to help students prepare for life after college is now underway at the university.
 
The event is called "The Career Games".

It will feature various seminars, games and activities to encourage students to engage in preparing to get a job after they graduate. Monday's event was a presentation targeted primarily at female students who may be trying to balance school with raising children.
 
"We're tryin' to stress the importance of it all. You know, we know that everyone comes here to obtain a degree or a discipline, but we also know that gaining employment is the next step once you graduate," explained Ieshia Walker, who gave the presentation Monday. Walker is also the Alumni Relations Coordinator at VSU.

"So, we're tryin' to encourage all students to start embedding this into their experience when they come to VSU," Walker continued.
 
 
VSU is holding a business themed fashion show at 7 p.m. Monday night to demonstrate the dos and don'ts when it comes to business attire.
