All the participants took full advantage of workshops and sessions, learned about the newest technology from vendors, experienced the Sound Lab, met with potential graduate schools, and interviewed for jobs across the U.S.

The students also met up with Saint Mary’s alum and Fellow of the institute, Dr. Randall W.A. Davidson, who has founded seven Risk Management corporations and has authored books on product liability and theatre safety.
