From October 16-19th, 2013, the Rawls Graduate Association (RGA) embarked on their corporate recruiting trip.  The organization took 11 graduate (MBA, JD/MBA, and MS Finance) students to visit 5 different companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

On October 17th, they visited Frost Bank, PlainsCapital Bank, Stream Realty, followed by a group dinner.

The following day, the students visited Lockheed Martin and Double Eagle Development. They concluded the trip by hosting an alumni networking mixer, where they invited Rawls alumni in the area to come out and meet with the organization.

According to RGA president, Katy King, the purpose of the trip is "to meet with companies that are looking to hire Rawls College of Business grads, as well as foster friendships between the members and meet with recent Rawls alumni and make connections."

"The trip was a success and has already lead to some interviews for some of our members," King continued.

L-R is: Gabriel Edmeier, Abby Giles, Kristine Seaman, Laura Sanders, Abraham Araujo, Nicholas Robertson, James Knipe, Katy King, Meredith Miller, Stacy McBeth, Alexis Peterson, Tine Roren
