SPECTRA: Current Students

SPECTRA is Here to Support You Along the Way

Today's businesses search for graduates who can go beyond basic academic abilities. People skills, sometimes called soft skills, include communicating, listening, critical thinking, leadership, and cooperation.

SPECTRA provides hands-on teamwork that allows you the ability to provide and accept feedback, develop empathy, and contend with contrasting personalities. By developing these interpersonal skills, you can impress prospective employers.

Your participation in SPECTRA allows you to develop teamwork and professional skill sets valuable for your path to graduation and beyond. As with any new program, adjustments continue to be made to ensure we provide the best support. Clemson University and CECAS offer many programs, such as tutoring, mentoring, and advising, and we encourage you to use them!
