Great event! Had not attended the Spring Internship & Job Fair in the past and I was very impressed with the number of employers in attendance and the great organization. Kudos to the organizers!

To see my grandson, Eric Morgensen get his degree in engineering was great. His grandfather, my husband, was able to see it live stream as he is housebound and couldn't attend.
