Take advantage of this great opportunity to engage and connect with BUILD alumni. Join us for pizza and chat with alumni as they share their reflections about their time at the IGL. This is a great opportunity for current members to ask questions, get advice and share information about current and upcoming projects. It’s casual, it's fun and it's a dinner built specifically to help student members develop their projects.
