Last Thursday, Oct 20th, Virgil (marketing associate here at Knovel) and I hit the road to Philadelpia, PA, to launch a Knovel Awareness Event on Drexel’s Campus, embarking on an adventure that would be the most successful the Ambassador’s Program has seen yet.
In case you haven’t heard, Knovel’s Student Ambassador Program seeks to grow engineering communities through networking opportunities, on-campus events and more. We are currently launching the program at MIT, Berkeley, Drexel, Vanderbilt and METU and have been fortunate enough to develop relationships with some pretty impressive engineering students.
The Student Ambassadors at Drexel were no exception! Meera Sharma, Andrew Carver and Tariq Packer were awesome enough to help represent Knovel at a Drexel’s Dragon Fair for freshman students and help us plan future networking events on how to represent the engineering and allocate resources toward Drexel’s engineering program.
Meera helps a fellow engineering student register for Knovel.
“The event was a success beyond all expectations, says Meera, Sharma, who’s currently studying Chemical Engineering at Drexel. “Seeing all Knovel members work together was a great motivating factor.”
We are continuing to work with the Drexel Ambassadors to launch a Knovel-sponsored official student group on campus that helps partner engineering students with the resources they need to succeed: from networking events to internship placement. While we are hard at work launching the Student Ambassador Program, the success of this event proves that there is much more in store for Drexel.
We look forward to many more successful events during this first year of the Knovel Ambassador Program, and thanks again to our awesome student ambassadors at Drexel!
