BSA Coffee Conversations is a unique opportunity for architecture students and new graduates to connect with Emerging Professionals (EP’s) at a time when traditional internships, co-ops, and jobs are on pause due to COVID-19. Participants can share stories about their personal paths to architecture, discuss finding a first job, what life in the office is actually like, and how the experience differs from firm-to-firm. Two EP’s will be paired with eight students, making for a casual and highly interactive environment.
