It’s All About Unity
What are the benefits of joining BBSA?
We are growing a network of students, community leaders, and professionals to help connect current and future students. We are also working on an alumni network in order to stay connected even after we all graduate. This will enable us to share knowledge, opportunities, career advice, as well as to help keep our social ties strong. We have companies inviting us to office visits, professionals coming to speak and/or do workshops with us, and we have social events. Giving back to the community is important and we are working on a series of service events to get more involved in the community.
