Where: POST (RSVP'd event)
What is the Meet and Greet?: This event is for all Undergraduate Math Majors, including Mathematical Biology, Math Graduate students, Departmental Faculty and Staff. The purpose of this social is to create a pleasant and comfortable environment among faculty and students. This year the Meet and Greet was held off-campus and students had to RSVP to the event.
Corporate repesentatives asked that the event take place off-campus so that students would feel more engaged with them, bolstering their soft skills. Representatives expressed that communication is vital in the workplace and during the interview process. Students were able to socialize with eachother and with company representatives during dinner and with a game of Monopoly. It was a lovely event and many professional relationships were formed. Thank you to the students, faculty and representatives whom attended!
