Drive your career to the forefront by being a part of SVIC 2021.
As an international student myself, I came to the US for the exposure, for the freedom to explore, experiment and excel, to make my mark in this world. What better way than giving life to our ideas.
The Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge (SVIC) is a competition hosted every year, where students are given opportunities to showcase their ingenious ideas to a wide range of investors, industry experts, SJSU faculty and peers. The mission of the SVIC is to provide the necessary tools and guidance to enable students to take their innovative business ideas to the next level. www.sjsu.edu/svic

Finals are just around the corner. Papers, presentations, and projects are due soon. The end of the semester is often a stressful time for many of us. In these hectic times, we may find ourselves skipping or even forgetting to eat a meal because we’re so busy. We might forego sleep to complete our work. We might study for hours on end without a break.
Sound familiar? Then give yourself a break! Even in these busy times, it’s important to pause and take a moment to take care of yourself. Breathe and let go of some stress so that you can recharge and power on to achieve academic success!
