Spring Snapshots: Networking Events

While the Fall semester is the busier time for networking events, our students participate in several Spring networking events as well. The Spring Networking Night is the counterpart to our similar event each fall in Atlanta. At Spring Networking Night, over 60 professionals, mostly alums, represented more than 40 companies for a fun night at Atlanta's Parish: The Brasserie and Neighborhood Cafe. We also had an Employer Showcase in Atlanta at Terry's Buckhead campus, with Ashford Advisors, AT&T, LexisNexis, and Invista.
On the Charlotte Trek, students crossed state lines and had site visits at Bank of America, Regions Corporate Bank, Spectrum Properties, and Newell Brands. The Charlotte Trek included an alumni reception with Terry Dean Benjamin Ayers, where they heard more about Phase II of the Business Learning Community, need-based scholarships, and upcoming alumni events.

We are grateful to have such dedicated alumni and corporate partners and thought we would share a few photos from each of these events.

 Clearly, Spring Networking Night was an engaging two hours!
 Students, alums, and other industry partners sure can fill a room fast.

one of many touch points during a busy recruiting season.
