Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, members and students for joining us for three days filled with professional development, personal connections, and community.Wednesday, we kicked things off with attendees rocking gear from their alma maters and Prospanica.

Thursday marked the opening of the Career Expo and Management Center.Over 90 corporations, educational institutions and government agencies were ready and excited to meet with Prospanica members from across the nation. The Career Management Center was an invaluable resource for members to review their resumes before hitting the Expo floor.
