Get Connected with 'OPPORTUNITIES 2013'

The SOC is making it easy to learn about professional and student organizations by bringing them together for this event.

On Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the University Center Sunnen Lounge, the School of Communications (SOC) Center for Portfolio Development and Internships will host "OPPORTUNITIES 2013." It is a student event designed to expose them to a range of professional and student organizations. The event will give students the opportunity to explore their professional interests, to network, to get involved with student organizations on campus, and to learn about the benefits of joining  professional associations.

According to Gary Ford, associate professor and one of the faculty advisors for Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), "Smart and successful students seek these organizations out and become active as student members so they will both be noticed and learn something about the real world of their professions."

In case the networking and learning opportunities are not incentive enough to stop by, there will be plenty of food available. Students should also be sure to register for the great raffle prizes. Appropriate attire for the event is business casual. The list of participating professional and student organizations is included below.
