Spring Update

Hi, it’s been a while. We just recently had an academic event with Professor Larrave - where he talked to us about entrepreneurship. So honored and thankful for having him, and looking forward to more events like these!! Also, Region 5 SHPE conference is coming up soon, so we’re looking forward to that :)

First GBM - Spring 2019

Thanks to everyone who came out on Monday. Loved sharing more info about our organization and we finally got our shirts distributed!! See you at our next event!

First Volunteering Event

Big thanks to Omar for this amazing opportunity! We were able to tutor high school students in different subjects ranging from Math to Science. And we were able to see their full potential.


We had an INROADS info session this past Tuesday. Our members were able to learn more about this leadership organization and how they can help YOU land your dream internship. Applications are open until March 31, 2019. You can apply/learn more here.

First Social Event

We had our first social event this past Sunday! Topgolf!! Thank you to everyone who came out, we had so much fun. Looking forward to more of these events.

Elevator Pitches

Our first partnership event of the year was incredible. Thank you to our amazing guest speaker, Dr. Ben Voth who gave us a few tips for knowing how to speak to recruiters!! The main takeaways were:

  • Lesson 1 - Maintain Eye Contact

  • Lesson 2 - Don't be afraid to say “I don’t know”. It’s better than making up lies.

  • Lesson 3 - Strong volume. Speak up. Be authoritative.

  • Lesson 4 - Know your “first sentence”. What is your mission? What are YOU about?

  • Lesson 5 - Give examples. Evidence of your opening sentence.

  • Lesson 6 - Be confident. Make other people want to be on your team.

And a big thanks to NSBE for being awesome collaborators - looking forward to more partner events!!

First General Meeting

Our first general meeting was a success!! Over 30 attendees for the first time in SHPE SMU history!! Thank you to everyone who came out!!! Looking forward to more accomplishments!
