The buzz from the 2013 NIRSA Triventure

“It was great to have all three institutes in the same location. I was able to learn and experience things that I may not have been able to otherwise.”

Ryan N. McCallum
Colorado School of Mines

“The Triventure gave each participant an opportunity to step outside their comfort zone, encouraging us to connect and network with those not in our respective program area. The coming together and collaboration of various NIRSA institutes created a more valuable professional development experience for attendees.”

Kristen Brosius
Springfield College

“The NIRSA Triventure experience provided an opportunity to network with an amazing group of professionals. The educational sessions provided information that can be applied immediately upon my return to campus. NIRSA hit a home run with this event.”

Daniel Kasambira

“Triventure allows you to meet professionals from all fields—not just your own. It’s a professional and fun event to expand your knowledge.”

“Great location! Lots of great people and networking opportunities…sometimes just being together and realizing that your colleagues struggle with the same issues and celebrate the same successes is worth the conversation and the attendance!”
