BBE's Annual Event Was A Successful Celebration
Twenty-six alumni and industry partners attended the annual BBE Showcase on October 29, 2014. The event and all its different activities was hosted at the St. Paul Student Center.
The day began with committee meetings of the BBE Advisory Council. Each committee - the Academic Advising, the Recruitment and Retention, and the Scholarship, Placement and Council Membership - meets face to face once a year to complete tasks outlined during the past three quarterly conference calls.
The department then hosted a luncheon to recognize scholarship recipients and donors. The luncheon was kicked-off by a fantastic presentation from Dr. Bernard Janse with Buckman Laboratories International. He spoke of the importance for students to be prepared when entering a job interview.
The annual meeting of the BBE Advisory Council took place after lunch, with council members, BBE staff and faculty, as well as CFANS Dean, Brian Buhr in attendance. The meeting was an opportunity for the department to share updates from the past year and ensure that all present were aware of the Council's primary objectives.
The day was capped off with a networking reception and research poster session. Alumni and industry partners had an opportuntity to meet students, staff and faculty in a relaxed environment. Student groups were on hand to highlight their activities.
The date for next year's BBE Annual Showcase will be announced in early May.
