Speed Networking Recap

Last Thursday, about 35 alums came out to Network with us!  Business cards were shared as everyone shared their  stories within the 8 minutes they were given to go from table to table.

We want to thank all the people who showed up to make this networking event a success.

This concludes our programming for 2013. I want to give a shout out to Angela Morales-Patterson for everything she has done for us on behalf of the Office of Program Development. They are always in our corner. I also want to give a shout out to all the alums who continue to support us and our events. Finally, the LANSU e-board has worked hard this year and we look forward to 2014
