GCA kicks off the start of the 2016 Fall semester with a Social Networking Event!

Post date: Sep 26, 2016 12:42:05 AM

On Friday afternoon about 60 graduate students mingled together in the Wang Center’s Chapel over sparkling cider and snacks. This is one of the many chances students could take a break from their research and classes to meet others from different departments and interests.

The Graduate Career Association was joined by Lyl Tomlinson who represents SBU SPADE (Scientists for Policy, Advocacy, Diplomacy and Education), Ilana Heckler and Wendy Hom from the GCS (Graduate Chemical Society), Yang Liu from the Consulting Club, and Meredith Walters from the MBA Association.

In addition to giving a brief overview of what GCA and the other organizations present do to help graduate students, GCA’s Samia Mohammed was on site to take professional headshots for all attendees.

Please join us for future networking and career opportunities!
