Attending College Events is a Win-Win Situation

Attending College Events is a Win-Win Situation

Attending events as a business student has its benefits. 

From resume workshops and career fairs, to expert series and student engagement opportunities, the Chambers College has many events throughout the year to help you get involved and prepare for your future. 

Students Attend the Fall 2022 Back to School Event at Reynolds Hall Sponsored by EY

In Fall 2022, business students were encouraged to attend several of our College's back-to-school events as we opened doors to Reynolds Hall for the first semester. 

One event hosted by our Center for Career Development (CCD), Discover Your Resources sponsored by EY, took place in August and gave business students the opportunity to meet with employers and student leaders. 

Aside from EY, other employers consisted of: ALKU, Alvarez & Marsal, LLC, Baker Tilly, CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Inc., FORVIS, KPMG LLP, MegaCorp Logistics LLC, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa, NVR / Ryan Homes, Summit Human Capital, Walgreens and more. 

At this event, students were able to also discover the new and improved resources in Reynolds Hall that were designed to strengthen their academic achievements and accelerate their professional success.

Not only did students have the option to engage with employers, and faculty and staff within Reynolds Hall, but they could also pick up a physical passport to indicate the people and services they visited. 

Students enjoyed food, games, and prizes for "visiting" different booths, including two Apple watches!

Congrats to the two students who visited the most employers and business spaces, Jarell Rimando and Kara Topping. 

Jarell Rimando and Kara Topping won Apple Watches for attending a Chambers College event in Fall 2022

Rimando is a freshman studying accounting and Topping is a junior studying economics. 

"It was a great opportunity to talk to potential employers," Topping said. "I went to the event with the idea of learning about businesses and companies I could potentially work for in mind. I never thought I would win, so that was a really nice surprise. I was very excited and I wear my watch every day."

No matter what you get out of an event – resume tips, public speaking skills, lessons on staying organized, a job opportunity or a physical prize – it is always worth stepping out of your comfort zone and learning something new.
