Any and all campus and community members are invited to stop by Saturday, September 26th starting at 8:15 a.m. in Textor Hall.
Below are some details about this year’s event:
What: This year’s Symposium — which coincides with Alumni Weekend — will feature two rounds of two panels: College Sport Administration and Sport Media; Professional Sport Administration. Alumni/ae experts from each field will be available to offer advice and insight from their respective industry.
Where: The “meet and greet” breakfast will take place outside Textor 101 at 8:15 a.m. Following the breakfast, the awards portion of the gathering will be in Textor 101 at approximately 8:40 a.m. After the recognition of our alumni/ae and non-alumni/ae contributors, panels will take place in various rooms throughout Friends Hall from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. (Specific room details will be provided day of the event.)
Why: This is a fantastic opportunity for our current majors, minors and non-majors to mingle and network with alumni/ae who are professionals in the management, media or continuing education industries. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about emerging trends in the sport field; gain insight about the appropriate paths to take toward gainful employment; and listen to new perspectives about the sport industry.
Reminder: Formal/professional attire for this event is strongly recommended.
