“We have over 25 clubs and organizations at the moment,” said Clinical Assistant Professor Dr. Sloane Milstein. “I think this event will not only help the students increase their awareness and confidence, but also get them to start making those important connections.”
Organizations include: The Houston Rockets, Houston Texans, Houston Dynamo, Texas Rangers, Brazos Valley Bombers, and the 12th Man Foundation.
“We want as many freshmen and sophomore students to attend as well,” said Dr. Milstein. “It’ll be a great way for them to see the tangible things that they can be apart of in the sport world.”
The Sport Management Job Fair will be held 6 p.m. Monday at the Thomas G. Hildebrand, DVM ’56 Equine Complex.
