    I enjoyed this, but for suggestions for improvement, possibly waiting a bit longer before food is served might give people more opportunity to mingle and meet people. It might also be nice to have some "one word" description on the name tags. Perhaps area of interest or specialty or company name would be useful. I was especially interested in meeting people doing start-ups software and hardware development but didn't happen to stumble across anyone.

    It was OK. I didn't have the ability to find out which start-up companies might be in attendance so it was hard to find people to talk to.

      Thanks for the feedback, Anna and Tianyu. What would make it easier for you to connect with folks at future events? Better nametags? Icebreaker activities? A list of companies at the door? Let me know your thoughts and suggestions!

    There is a parking lot next to Schoellkopf Stadium on Campus Rd. It's pretty close to the Engineering Quad.

    There has been a date change from 5/29 to 6/11 due to a conflicting event on 5/29. Sorry for the inconvenience, and we hope everyone who's RSVP'd so far can still make it!
