Looking Back at 2015-16, and Ahead to 2016-17

As we plan for 2016-17, we are looking back at the past school year. It was a full and busy one! We held over 30 events, hosted 15 professional guests, went on five experiential visits, and welcomed 20 high school juniors. Other highlights include the 6th Annual Empowering Women in Business conference, our first Awareness week, and a student-run awareness auction. Click here for the full list of 2015-16 events. And keep your eye out for the Fall 2016 calendar, which will be published at the start of the semester. If you’re interested in getting involved or have ideas, please email Jean Beaupre, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
