A Message from the Evening MBAA President:

Few things benchmark the magnitude of the change that we go through during the school year like Summer Break.  It never ceases to amaze me how “just working” can feel like a vacation from all the sprints during the school year.  It’s critical that you enjoy the time off from school – spend time with friends you haven’t seen in what seems like forever, take a trip somewhere, read a good book, hit the gym, binge watch all those episodes of Game of Thrones that you missed because you had assignments to turn on Sunday nights.

I think that part of that summer enjoyment comes from re-balancing life a bit and redirecting the newly available academic energy into some of the things that fall to the bottom of the priority list.

Still thinking about switching jobs but haven’t been “Green-Lit” yet?  Career Services is offering workshops all summer long to help you (check the newsletter for the schedule).  Want to get a head start on next year’s Business Plan Competition?  Take some time to think about that brilliant idea that you haven’t had the bandwidth to explore.

Whatever activities you decide to pursue in the next 3 months, know that the MBAA board will be planning some fun things for you this summer and some new events to help you reengage in being a student when you get back to school in the Fall.

Until we meet again,
Adam Rubens
EveMBAA President
