Graduate Management Student Association (GMSA) Wine Tasting and Networking Event

  Guests enjoyed wine and appetizer pairings at the GMSA Wine Tasting and Networking event.
  Cathy Wheelock, MBA ’13 and GMSA event chair, along with the GMSA team, welcomed alumni and guests to the networking event.

Rita Thompson, a long-time student service manager at the Lally School, was recognized for her dedication and years of service.

On November 2, the Rensselaer Lally School Graduate Management Student Association (GMSA) hosted an event, “Cheers with Alumni 2012,” at Revolution Hall at Brown’s Brewing Co. in Troy. The event, attended by 150 guests, featured current Lally MBA students, faculty, staff, alumni/ae, as well as friends of the Lally School. Guests enjoyed wine and appetizer pairings, while reconnecting with old friends, networking, and enjoying good conversation with alumni/ae.

The annual Wine Tasting event provides Lally graduate students with the opportunity to practice their networking skills with alumni/ae and members of the local business community. The evening was sponsored this year by the generous efforts of the event’s sponsors – including title sponsor, CDPHP, and supporting sponsors TS Treo Solutions and TIMIT Solutions.

This year’s event included recognition of Rita Thompson, a long-time student service manager at the Lally School, for her years of service to Rensselaer students, the Lally School, and the alumni/ae community.
