Students majoring in a wide range of academic disciplines at Eastern, as well as from other schools in Connecticut such as UConn and CCSU, participated in the "BEST Fest" (Business Experiential Skills and Technology Festival) on Nov. 17 in the Betty R. Tipton Room of the Student Center. Students exhibited their experiential learning individual or team projects and competed in up to three of 18 different categories for prizes.
The event was sponsored by several Connecticut businesses and employers, and hosted by the Eastern student Association of Information Technology (AITP) Chapter, American Marketing Association Chapter, Apps Club, and the Economics and Entrepreneurship Clubs. The judges-- Connecticut and New England employer representatives--examined the exhibits and talked with students exhibitors about their projects, providing the students with valuable feedback.
Students used the exhibition as a career networking opportunity to share their resumes and business cards.
