Really wish there were more than 8 employers that went. Only 2 were viable for full time positions in the summer.

Better than past 2 semesters, more students. Still difficult to get students to engage. Many will not make eye contact, I think they show up just to get the points/passport/etc. Do we need to invest in swag?

An interesting reminder to be aware of other peoples' circumstances, but I feel the length of the training can drastically be reduced. Nicole LaDue summed it up perfectly with "Don't be a jerk."
