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)
