The 3rd Annual Aggie Connections event was a great success, with 25 businesses and schools present. The Academic Records Center hosted the event on April 11th in McKee Library with 60 students who attended and were able to network.
Dean of the Academic Resource Center Sarah Green commented, “This is one of my favorite events here at OPSU. It is an opportunity for our upcoming graduates to get a chance to visit with area business professionals. They gain valuable insights, and many of them have walked away with jobs over the years. It is pretty special to get to be part of that.”
Senior Kyle Babb commented, “The Aggie Connections event provided me with several huge opportunities to present my personality and my skills to employers from all across the area. It lets me practice invaluable social skills to connect with great individuals.”
“I got to practice approaching business professionals in a great environment. I’m thankful OPSU gives me the opportunity to find successes before I walk the stage,” said Senior Kylie Moore.
The Academic Resource Center hopes they can continue to improve the event each year. The goal is to make this a tradition that seniors, alumni, and businesses look forward to attending.
“I’m so grateful for the support from OPSU as a whole and our community businesses. We have the best students here, and I’m glad we can provide them this opportunity,” stated MaKenze Anderson, Academic Resource Center Coordinator.
