At the start of this academic year, The BALSA Group worked on engaging new graduate students and post-docs at universities in St. Louis. We welcomed the new graduate students at Washington University by participating in the Danforth Campus Welcome BBQ, BME Orientation, and DBBS orientation. We also organized an information booth at the Graduate Orientation in Saint Louis University. We engaged the incoming graduate students through presentations and conversations regarding the advantages of learning about the entrepreneurial side of science and exploring careers outside academia.
