Cultivating Connections in the Bepko Scholars and Fellows Program

In my internship with the IUPUI Honors College as a Bepko Programs Intern, I program events, manage social media, and launch initiatives to connect current scholars, prospective scholars, and alums. My goal through this internship is to create programming where current students can connect with each other and have the opportunity to connect with prospective students and alums. As a university, our connectedness has changed a lot within the past two years with events pivoting from in-person to virtual. Navigating the ability to plan in person events has been challenging, but it's also the most rewarding part of my job.
