On Thursday, April 7th, the Smeal WMBA held a Welcome Reception for all the female admitted students at the Atherton Hotel. This event provided the potential ladies of the Class of 2013 to get better acquainted with current students, administration, and alumni and also to learn more about the day to day life of an MBA. WMBA President, Sylvia Shank opened the evening with welcoming remarks and a brief overview of the benefits of becoming a member of the WMBA. Also, the admitted students were introduced to both current and past WMBA board members. After Sylvia’s welcome, we all had the opportunity to get to know one another better while enjoying delicious cake and beverages.
The remainder of the evening was devoted to conversations about all aspects of the Smeal experience ranging from football tailgates to daily workload to Global Immersion experiences. We all had a chance to learn from each other and to talk about our past experiences and future expectations. Finally, PSU prizes were awarded to the winners of a raffle. All in all, the WMBA Visitation Reception provided the new students with a glimpse into what life will be like during their time at Smeal. The Class of 2012 WMBA members are very excited to welcome the new Class of 2013 and we look forward to getting to know each other better next year.
