One of the things that initially attracted me to the Smeal MBA program was the wide array of associations that existed within the school. Before the start of school I had read a little bit online about each of the organizations and was looking forward to getting involved as early as possible. Luckily, the program held an association night early in the semester where first year students could go and learn more about all of the MBA associations. It was a great opportunity to meet with the leaders of the different organizations and see what sparked your interest.
The only negative was that I left association night interested in more organizations than my schedule can accommodate…
