Sunday, June 25, 5:00 – 5:30 PM, Room 208

Student Meet and Greet

Meet fellow students of all acoustics disciplines over heavy hors d’oeuvres.

Sunday, June 25, 5:30 – 7:00 PM, Room 300

Student Reception

Sponsored by ASA and supported by the National Council of Acoustical Consultants, come grab a bite and network. In addition to students this event is often attended by some who are looking to fill acoustics positions.
