Our first monthly meeting will be held on Monday, September 14th, at 8:30pm in the Cook Campus Center Room 202!  We will be taking attendance and filling everyone in on what exciting things we have planned for the semester; and we will have a very memorable speaker joining us!

Spencer Antonucci is a Personal Trainer, Exercise Physiologist, and Fitness Manager at Equinox Fitness!  Spencer will be talking about his background in the industry, what he does in his current field, and how you can get into the world of fitness.  He will also be bringing other representatives from Equinox to meet all of you and answer your questions.  At the end, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet Spencer.

In addition, we will be discussing the details of our upcoming events, including our 5th Annual Career Fair!  This year's career fair will take place on November 10th at 6:30pm in the Multipurpose Room of the College Avenue Student Center.  We already have several great industry-leading companies that have confirmed attendance, and we look forward to discussing it more at the meeting.
