Join The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business for their new Fireside Chats Series.  The series will feature business school alumni returning to the nest for a casual and fun dialogue on where their career has taken them since graduating, how Post prepared them for their journeys after graduation, professional advice, and more.

Celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day

On February 1, we celebrated all our women student-athletes, coaches, athletics associates, and our women’s teams.  This year marked the 37th anniversary of the day and serves as a celebration to inspire girls and women to play and be active, and to celebrate them realizing their full potential through athletics and sport.  This year, we asked our followers on Instagram to share special shout-outs to the Eagles who inspire them – and our community didn’t disappoint!  Check out some of the women and teams that were celebrated!

Head over to the Women’s Sports Foundation website to learn more about this annual celebration of girls and women in sports, as well as their other initiatives.
