SEBA Networking Lunches: 

SEBA holds lunch and/or happy hour sessions twice a month. Though these lunches are typically held off-campus, in light of COVID-19 they will be held virtually, via Zoom. These events are open to science and engineering undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. Participants gain exposure to new industries, get information on specific career paths, make valuable connections, and practice networking in a casual setting. Events are limited to a small group (around 5-7 participants). Active SEBA members are given event priority.
