THE Meeting 2014
Each semester, the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business hosts THE Meeting for incoming students of the Professional Program. Previously known as Junior Orientation, this event provides students with several opportunities to learn more about the Perdue School as well as the Professional Program. Students learn specifically about the process of transitioning from a pre-professional to professional student, meeting with faculty, and engaging with other departments and students. THE Meeting was held on Thursday, September 18, this semester.
THE Meeting was broken up into three sessions: the Opening Session, the Resource Session and the Break-Out Session. This semester, Interim Associate Dean Dr. Oliver Roche gave insight regarding professionalism in the Perdue School and how it transitions into the workplace during the Opening Session. He emphasized that being a professional is no longer about being good, but it is about being great and setting one’s self apart from others. Students were charged with investing time into themselves in order to build upon their professionalism and meet high expectations.
Students had the opportunity to attend both Resource and Break-Out sessions. During the Resource Session, students met with faculty from their major and learned more about various career opportunities for future consideration. The Break-Out Session gave students the opportunity to learn about different organizations and clubs in the Perdue School as well as network with other students attending the event.
THE Meeting has certainly evolved into an event that is truly beneficial for students. “I thought this meeting was very helpful and very informative,” said one student in attendance. Students leave THE Meeting with more information, insight and knowledge about the Perdue School and how to professionally succeed throughout their junior and senior years.
