WINS Club - Men in the Field dinnerJoy Carlson, AIA, professor, Computer Imaging and Architectural Engineering Technology Department, Alfred State College, and adviser to the WINS Club, (Women in Non-traditional Studies--though the club is open to all students) welcomed two alumni speakers to the club's annual Men in the Field dinner in April.  The dinner is an opportunity for students to hear first-hand accounts of the work place from "men in the field." The speakers discussed their work experiences, what is expected, which courses (both curriculum and liberal arts) and college activities help them in their jobs, and advice such as "pay attention to your grade point average because companies will," and your job is what you make it.
