BIG Event

We will be featuring a BIG Event, where representatives from Business, Industry, and Government will be present to tell us about their jobs, what they do, how they got to where they are now, advice they have, and other interesting things that they can offer. This will be informative to everyone, and especially informative to undergraduate students. Therefore, you should:

  • Plan to attend the conference if you are an undergraduate student
  • Plan to bring your undergraduate students if you are a faculty member
  • Plan to participate in the BIG event if you work in Business, Industry, or Government. In order to express interest, contact Ryan Gantner at rgantner@sjfc.edu.
