New Tech Opportunities and @MillikinPC Presentation Tonight!

Happy Last week of Classes!

Check out my Tech Opportunities page on my website and let Professor Ed Weber or me know if you are interested in any of these. A new opportunity has been added this week to assist Homework Hangout implement the database students built last spring. Let me know if you are interested.

Also, MU Performance Consulting is delivering their semester-end presentation on the client projects they have worked on this semester through the student-run venture. You are welcome to join us at 5:00 in UC 138/140. You can also check it out on the MU Performance Consulting Facebook page as it will be live streamed.

We’re also always looking for ways to keep you engaged outside of class. If you have an evening event hackathon or something special you want to help organize, let us know.

If I don’t get to tell you personally, good luck in the final stretch of the semester and and enjoy a much-needed winter break.

Tech Opportunities

Happy Thanksgiving week,

It’s been a while since I’ve sent an update on opportunities for tech-related students to get involved outside of class. The list grew so large that I decided to get a web page going to elicit all of those available. Check out my Tech Opportunities page on my website and let Professor Ed Weber or me know if you are interested in any of these. Many are internships and some are upcoming competitions this spring. As new items come up, I’ll be sure to keep this page updated.

We’re also always looking for ways to keep you engaged outside of class. If you have an evening event hackathon or something special you want to help organize, let us know.

Student-run Venture Career Fair on 11/1

November 1st 2017 4-6pm in the University Commons 140, 142, 150, 152 

Why do we need a Student Venture Career Fair?

  1. Students that are required to take a student venture often don’t know all the options they have. This will bring awareness so they can pick one that they are passionate about or they think they can make the most difference.
  2. Ventures often get students through telling their friends to join the class. This would provide ventures with a more diverse student pool and increase visibility.
  3. This is a good opportunity for potential students to visit and see yet another layer of what Millikin has to offer.

Student Ventures to be involved:

  1. Blue Brew Coffee Shop
  2. Big Blue Personal Training
  3. Blue Connection Retail Art Gallery
  4. Blue Satellite Press
  5. Bronze Man Books Publishing Company
  6. Carriage House Press
  7. First Step Records
  8. Ignite Studios Ad Agency and Gaphic Design Firm
  9. MUPC IT Consulting
  10. Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre
