Advantages to Careers on the Buy Side

As the finance recruiting season starts, it’s important to understand every aspect of the industry. Here’s your opportunity to hear why a career on the buy side can be an advantageous place to start your career. Alumni from leading buy-side investment firms will be participating in a panel discussion about the pros and cons of careers on the buy side. These same firms will be on campus this fall for internship and full-time recruiting. Following the panel, the employers will be available for networking and individual questions. Come hear about each firm and determine if pursuing a career on the buy-side is right for you.

Re-presenting Nonotuck: The Landscape Paintings of Hitchcock and Gloman

until Oct 29 Frost Library, Mezzanine Gallery

Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.

The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
