Sooo…how’s your fall semester going? Actually, never mind. We know, and we’re sorry. That’s why we created ExtraCurricular. ICYMI: We’ve created an entire semester’s worth of classes—free! free classes!—to give you everything that (campus) life just…isn’t right now.

sign up here

It’s College 2.0, and you’re invited, whether you’re:

  • still in high school (and making TikToks of your AP calc teacher on Zoom, we see you)

  • surviving Intro to Econ literally right this sec (btw, you forgot to mute your Zoom and everyone can hear your roomie yelling at her BF)

  • or post-college and out in the real world also on Zoom

Listen, the job market is tougher than ever, and even in “normal” times, we know you’re probs not getting what you *really* need to start your dream career. That's why, over the last few weeks, we rolled out a series of classes, presented by Dell XPS, that teach you all the stuff you need to thrive at this exact moment we’re in (how to find the job, land it, not hate it, and then actually save money, avoid burnout, take care of yourself, and more). Created by your crew at Cosmo alongside Plan B One-Step, these virtual workshops have been taught by a dream team of mentors: entrepreneurs, celebs, influencers, and editors.

We just wrapped up the semester but if you missed anything, don't panic! Videos of the sessions are still available to watch right this sec. (But, you know, if you join Cosmo Unlocked, in which case you can keep the vids forever. Better than taking notes, no?! Exactly.) Here's what's available to watch rn:
