2022 Family and Friends Mixer
The 2022 Family and Friends Mixer took place on December 9 at the Anatol Center on campus. More than 30 family and friends of the METRIC students joined for a night of celebration and fun.
The event started with two icebreaker activities followed by a holiday-themed buffet dinner, and a formal welcome and introduction of the program organizers. During dinner, a slideshow of alumni highlights was playing in the background. Multiple alumni talked about how their scholarship program helped shape them into the people they are today and provided some words of wisdom for the current students. Some current scholars shared how the program has impacted them financially and academically. The event ended with a holiday game and group photos.
METRIC's Family and Friends Mixer serves many important purposes:
- Introduce the family to this community of support.
- Educate the family about many things related to STEM studies.
- Allow METRIC students to further connect with each other and remind them the importance of community.
- Provide METRIC students an opportunity to connect with program alumni.
