SWE hosts lunch with Verizon!

On Tuesday February 2, 2016 UMass SWE hosted a lunch with Verizon. UMass alumnus Jay Latorre, BS '07 CSE, and alumna Kelly Kennedy, BS '15 EE, spent the afternoon having lunch with our SWE members. This lunch gave the girls the opportunity to learn about life after graduation, network with professionals, and learn about possible employment opportunities at Verizon!

SWE members enjoyed hearing from UMass alum over pizza and salad. 

Thank you Verizon for spending your afternoon at UMass. SWE really appreciate it!
