Annual Wine and Cheese Networking Event

A formal event, always popular among students and our business connections, that begins with a networking reception followed by a session led by a guest speaker who provides some insight into life in the “real world”. Held in the fall, it is typically our second most attended event.

Annual Business Dinner (Premier Event)

Keynoted by a SMU alumnus, the event is designed to strengthen our local and global communities, and inspire students to realize their full potential.
