Early Fall Networking and Career Programming Photo Recap

The metaphors abound for the first semester of the MBA experience: firehoses, sponges, even pâté geese. Here's a quick photo overview of programming and events outside of classes for the first three weeks of the semester. Thank goodness for a long weekend ahead!
