The wait is over — SFC Innovate officially launched today.
St. Francis College commemorated by holding a series of events in Founders Hall and Callahan Center, and in the evening a reception took place at Industry City.
The festivities began on campus at 11:30 a.m. with an Opening Presentation and series of Panel Presentations.
There was also an Internship Readiness Pop-Up that encouraged students to apply to internships and also gave advice in regards to interview preparation.
According to the college, “this two-day workshop provides fundamental professional development skills for St. Francis College students who will be matched with companies based on industry and skillset.”
There was also some focus on first generation Americans. A “Being First Generation” claimed that “there are many lessons and stories to learn from our peers that have parents who have brought their families to the United States.”
Another panel, titled “We All Have 24 Hours” stated that although life is not fair, we all have the same 24 hours. The presentation discussed how to maximize time and capitalize on resources to get the best return on investment.
