EOC MAP Kicks Off with Summer Picnic
The Mentee Alumni Program (MAP) successfully launched at the EOC’s 10th anniversary celebration on May 5th, 2011. To move forward with our organization, MAP kicked off summer in style with our first event, a picnic on June 5th at Madison Square Park with some delicious picnic food and casual sports activities for the alumni.
Alumni enjoyed homemade guacamole and chips and fresh cut fruits as they networked with each other. Participants agree that they were glad they attended. Danish Kapur said, “The last EOC event was well attended by the recent graduates working in different sectors and industries and it certainly helped in making me aware of the latest corporate trends and how companies are positioning themselves in response to the current economic conditions.”
Another student is glad to be a part of EOC MAP. She said, “An important part of the Baruch education/experience is the relationships we build with our peers and professors. EOC MAP allows us to extend this experience by giving us the opportunity to further build on the network of awesome students, present and former. It is fun and it’s good for our career development.”
Attendees are excited about attending more EOC MAP events. If you have an idea for a future event or would like to organize one, feel free to email us at EOC.Alumni@baruch.cuny.edu.
