Each spring semester a select group of undergraduate seniors participate in a networking session and luncheon with the College of Liberal Arts Advisory Board. The event is hosted by Dean Hennessy. Members of the Advisory Board include Texas State alumni who received liberal arts degrees. The event provides students with an opportunity to practice networking skills through roundtable discussions, to ask career-related questions, and to expand their professional contacts. Students also learn the value of their liberal arts degree from successful professionals of various backgrounds. This event continues to be a great success. It allows students to gain valuable insight and advice and gives our Liberal Arts Advisory Board members the opportunity to mentor our students.
