First- and Second-Year Experience (FSYE), hosted its annual event, “Cupcakes and Conversation,” last Wednesday, Oct. 24, at their office in Altgeld Hall Room 100.
The evening event was centered on students networking with professors and being able to have informal conversations with them that they would not be able to have in the classroom. Some faculty and staff who were in attendance were Ellen Cabrera (Public Administration), Jimmie Manning (Organizational/Corporate Communication), Jeffrey Chan (Special and Early Education) and Anne-Marie Kuchinski (Nursing).
The event drew a crowd of 53 participants, and the conversations were buzzing.
One student remarked, “Faculty and staff are not scary to approach and are great to talk with and get to know more about.”
Another student gave advice to future participants: “Put yourself out there! Meeting new people is a great experience.”
