What are some things to do over winter break? 
"The winter break is a great time to learn about an industry and job function you are curious about by doing a wINTERNship or project for an alum.  Look for things you haven't done and industries you are not familiar with to broaden your perspective.  If you are a junior or senior with a clear idea of what you want to do after graduation then use this break to strengthen your resume with work related to your goals"  - Tonio Palmer, Director of Entrepreneurship
