How to Get the Most Out of ESA’s 2015 Annual Meeting: An Orientation for Student and First Time Attendees

Monday, August 10, 2015: 11:30 AM-1:15 PM
331, Baltimore Convention Center
Dane C. Ward, Drexel University
We want to welcome all students to the Centennial Meeting of the ESA with this special session offering strategies to make the most of their week in Baltimore. The Student Section in collaboration with SEEDS has designed the orientation to cover a wide range of topics including but not limited to:

  • what is new and exciting at the Centennial Meeting
  • how to network with colleagues and peers
  • how to approach professors without feeling intimidated
  • how to select talks to attend
  • great talks to attend
  • how to navigate Baltimore

The session targets first-time meeting attendees but advice and discussion opportunities are relevant to all meeting participants. After a brief presentation on the aforementioned topics, the session will feature a panel of seasoned ESA meeting attendees who will provide tips from their experiences. A panel discussion will ensue. We will then break into smaller groups and facilitate the development of “meeting game plans” to ensure that everyone can have a successful meeting experience.
