Celebration Banquet Moved to the Spring

In Fall of 2018, the advisory board voted to move our annual Celebration Banquet to the spring. The drivers behind this move were the academic calendar, the intense fall recruiting season for internships, co-ops and full time placement, along with the variety of back to school events.  Our goals and desires are to more intentionally balance all of our activities.

Stay tuned as we communicate our more comprehensive transition plan. We are very appreciative of the support we receive from our donors, friends, alumni and corporate partners, so in an effort to keep our positive momentum going, we are excited to be able to host a banquet this spring 2019 in our “transition year”.

From this point forward, our plans are to have our Paper Industry Career Fair and advisory board meeting in the fall, and our celebration banquet, advisory board meeting and guest speaker/professional development in the Spring annually.  Please email Jennifer Piercy at with any questions you might have.  Everyone is most welcome at all of our events!
