Thank you to those who came to this semester’s first social event hosted by the GWPMA!

The Meet and Greet Social Hour held last Friday, September 27 at the Circa Foggy Bottom, was attended by both current students and alumni. Once again, we thank our new GWPMA representatives: Tahirah Dickenson, Amanda Rollins and Marie Chambers for organizing such a great event to bring everyone together. For those who missed it, please keep an eye on future event announcements!

Interested in real-time communication with your fellow MSPM students?

As announced last week, the GWPMA (student organization) would like to create a WhatsApp group for project management students to allow a real-time communication group to interact with everyone within the MSPM program. Please see the link below that provides a survey for anyone interested in joining the WhatsApp group.
