We’ve hinted at a change and now it’s here! Welcome to the inaugural issue of Refresh, our redesigned electronic newsletter. Hopefully you will find it engaging, relevant and fun to read.
In celebration of our new look, readers of the inaugural issue of Refresh are eligible to enter a drawing for a $75.00 American Express gift card to be chosen at random by me. All you have to do to be in the running is to look for and click on the hidden Watson icon while reading through Refresh.
The Seidenberg School continues to be a busy place. Our premier event, the Leadership and Service in Technology Award Reception, will be on June 22. This year we will be honoring Gary Butler, CEO and President of ADP; hosting a panel discussion of the emerging field of “cloud computing”; and featuring a special demonstration by IBM’s Watson.
This has been a time of recognition and awards for the students, faculty and alumni of the Seidenberg School. Two Seidenberg students partnered with a student in the Lubin School to win a place in the Pace University incubator for the “best new business concept,” a Seidenberg student came in second in IBM’s “Master the Mainframe” contest, and our founding dean, Dr. Susan Merritt, was recognized for her work in computing by the Verizon Foundation, who named a scholarship after her. Dr. Merritt presented the first scholarship to a student at the Westchester County Women in Technology Awards luncheon.
