As a La Roche student, you have access to numerous professional development events on campus and beyond. Throughout the year we offer networking and interview opportunities hosted by valuable employer partners as well as our office. We also provide insight on all the Career-Ready Competencies through events, workshops, and presentations offered to students through classroom presentations, small groups, student organizations, and campus-wide.
La Roche is a proud partner in the Western Pennsylvania Career Services Association (WestPACS) and the Pittsburgh Education Recruitment Consortium (PERC) which create even greater opportunities for students to network and interview with top employers, and gain knowledge and information from our esteemed consortium partners.
Student Academic Support Services hosts a series of homework-help nights each semester. The three parts of the series - Redhawk Rise, Redhawk Refresh, and Redhawk Review - are timed to correspond with the start of the semester, Midterm Exam Week, and Final Exam Week, respectively. At each homework help night, Subject Tutors and Writers' Center Tutors are available for two hours to assist students with exam prep, study strategies, and questions with their assignments and projects. No appointment is needed!

Workshops are held each semester on a variety of subjects to support students' academic growth. Study-Skill workshops focus on topics like time management, note-taking, and exam prep. Writers' Center workshops explore a wide range of topics focused on reading and the writing process, including APA/MLA citation, grammar and clarity, and understanding writing assignments. These interactive workshops help students to build skills that translate to both classroom and career.
