Alumni Gather for Event in Gulfport, Speed Networking in Orlando

Members of the Alumni Board of Directors met with Pinellas County alumni and current parents in the Mann Lounge at the College of Law Feb. 15. All guests were proud and excited about the updates provided by President Doug Lee and Vice President and Dean of the College of Law Darby Dickerson regarding the DeLand, Gulfport and Tampa campuses.

The Stetson University Alumni Association held another round of Speed Networking in Orlando on Feb. 26 at the Country Club of Orlando. Alumni made their way around tables exchanging business cards and minute-long introductions. At the end, participants were given the opportunity to continue networking with anyone that they were interested in learning more about.

The Orlando Speed Networking group shows all of the contacts they made.

The Alumni Association also opened the event to current junior and senior Stetson students who may be looking for a summer internship or job. Lizzie Guenther ’09, a junior Marketing major, said, “I’m so glad I came. It was very exciting, and I feel like I have a lot of possibilities for internships to follow up on.”

Speed Networking continues to gain interest after being introduced last year by Alumni Board member Will Royall '04. Be sure to check the Alumni Association Web site for the next event in your area.
