As you know, the last part of the conference will be a networking hour. It will be a great opportunity to talk more intimately with some of the panelists, presenters, and representatives from campus organizations. We know that you may have never attended a networking event before, so we wanted to give you some tips to help you get the most out of the event.

  • Look at the lists of panelists and organizations (see below) who will be in attendance. Come up with some questions you might want to ask beforehand.
  • Throughout the day, think about whom you might want to talk to during the networking hour.
  • Avoid gravitating toward people you know. Get out of your comfort zone and introduce yourself to someone new.
  • Don’t be shy – the point of the event is to talk to new people and make connections!

There will be representatives from the following organizations at the networking hour:

  • The Graduate School
  • Study Abroad
  • The Entrepreneurship Minor
  • The Kenan Science Library
  • The Princeton Review
  • American Women in Mathematics (AWM)
  • Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS)
