On Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, students from the Kania School of Management were joined by young alumni for the 6th annual Kania Young Alumni Day networking event. This event took place in Brennan Hall from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., followed by a networking cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres. The planning committee for the event included Tamara Bautista as the moderator along with students Nicole Angiuoli ’19, Jordan Reis ’19, Cynthia Navarro ’19, Abbey Murphy ’20, Patrick Budicini ’20, Mark Miller ’19, Gina Sposato ’19, Livia Kelly ’22, Bobby Scholly ’21 and Maiya Bautista ’21.
The event started with an opening introduction from Angiuoli, president of the planning committee, and Reis, vice president of the planning committee, followed by a speech by Dr. David Salerno, accounting professor. The planning committee then ushered students and alumni into six groups to participate in “Kania Games,” as an interactive icebreaker. A luncheon shortly followed the “Kania Games” which allowed for more time to network. As lunch came to a close, students were sorted by major: accounting, finance, finance/economics, marketing and general business. These groups then held individual information panels to dive deeper into each industry sector.
