Industrial Affiliates Fall 2014 Workshop

Fall 2014 Industrial Affiliates Workshop Luncheon

The fall 2014 Industrial Affiliates Workshop was yet another resounding success! Twenty-five companies attended the workshop, with 18 participating in the Corporate Showcase and Career Fair. In addition, 125 students attended the showcase and both students and faculty gave fascinating and informative presentations. Because 2014 was OSC's 50th anniversary, Dean Thomas L. Koch invited attendees to a pre-conference celebration at Old Tucson. Guests enjoyed a live country-western band, a southwest-inspired buffet, cancan dancers, singers and a gunfight in the streets of Old Tucson.

We look forward to seeing you in 2015!
