Alumni and Partners
Semester End Celebrations
An Alumni Mixer is held mid-semester to allow networking between past students who have gone through the same journey as current students. Sbona Honors Program alumni and sponsors are invited to attend the semester end celebration honoring graduating students. Both graduating students and current students, honors faculty, the Dean of the LCOB and, of course, Gary J. Sbona, will be in attendance. You will be notified via the Gary J. Sbona Honors Program Linked-In group of the date, place and time. The purpose is to provide current students with the benefit of your experience, and to provide you with the opportunity to network with some of your fellow alumni, honors project teams, and honors faculty.
How You Can Help
We would appreciate any ideas you might have regarding how we might involve alumni and project sponsors more in the program. Some things you could consider include:
- Attending Networking Events
- Mentoring honor students
- Coffee Talks with honor students about work experience
- Providing speakers, or being a speaker in guest lectures
- Provide Scholarship opportunities to honor students
Please contact the Honors Coordinator, or the program director Meg Virick, Ph.D.
Not many undergraduates can say that their school project helped a real company overcome a challenge. The Sbona Honors Program gave me the opportunity to collaborate with executives and other talented students to take lessons that we learned from our textbooks and transform them into meaningful solutions.Jessa Parayno,Sbona Honors Graduate, 2019
All is A+. We enjoyed working with them. The team was useful and helpful to our startup efforts. Our goal was to allow the students to transparently see a real Silicon Valley tech startup from inception to first customers, and to share more visionary aspects. The team tracked down and researched all that we asked and were pivotal in helping us determine some best practice and process.
