What to Bring

As a social and casual event, you will only need business cards.  There will be scattered bistro tables with high chairs and a few regular height tables and chairs.  Name badges will be provided at check-in, and alumni status will be noted on the name badge.

 

What to Expect from Students

The Fall Fete is a social, casual function.  The students will be solo or in groups and could be standing, walking around, sitting, etc.  They will be looking for opportunities to initiate conversations or join existing ones.  Students know in advance which companies and alumni will be coming and have been encouraged to do background research and to bring personal business cards (not resumes since this is a casual social event). 

You will notice that most of the students will have official name badges.  Name badges are part of the Welcome Bundles for our professional sales majors, minors, and pre-sales students.  We did this for a variety of reasons, and the feedback on the name badges and bundles from both students and companies has been very positive.  The students with write-on name badges are either students taking sales classes as an elective (most likely scenario), students who still need to submit their major/minor declaration paperwork (some are still being processed), or students who forgot their ESSPS name badge.
