 Direct Connect | 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.

Ever wish you could grab a cup of coffee with the top designers of the leading SE firms? At this event, students will have the opportunity to "connect" and interact one-on-one with leading industry experts from design and construction companies around North America in a relaxed setting. While most firms at this event may not be hiring, this is a great opportunity to meet significant designers and make key contacts at major firms.

Student Reception | 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Students who attend the SCIS Morning Session and Direct Connect are invited to join us for a special student reception on Thursday evening.  The reception will be held at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel, which is located just a few blocks from the convention center.  This event is free to SCIS attendees.  Food and beverages will be served.
