Thanks to Students, Universities & Mentors!
Many thanks to all of those who participated in the recent university outreach activities at the ICSC Southeast Conference in Atlanta. "University Row" participants included Auburn University, Clemson, the College of Charleston, Florida State University, Georgia State University, the University of Florida, and the University of Miami.
Students from several schools including Clemson, Florida State, and Georgia State, as well as alumni from the Real Estate Associates Program, took advantage of mentoring program, gaining advice and guidance from industry professionals. Michael Brewster, president of the student real estate society at FSU, organized a delegation of a dozen students who attended the meeting. Says FSU senior and real estate major Greg Rainey, "I felt the mentoring opportunities were the highlight of the meeting."
