Between general monthly meetings, events where we host various influential leaders in the retail industry, socials, fundraisers, and other events, there are many ways to participate and get involved throughout the semester.
SRA members attend various networking events every year to make connections in the industry. Past SRA members are currently working at countless retail brands across the world!
We host multiple trips each year, one to New York and one to cities such as Milwaukee, Chicago, and Minneapolis. Our trips are a great way to connect with other members while getting a first-hand look at select brands' offices in these cities.
2024 NRF CONFERENCE - NEW YORK CITY
January 11th - 14th, 2024
The NRF Foundation Student Program in New York City gives college students the unique opportunity to launch their future careers in retail and experience all that the industry offers. Retail executives in marketing, merchandising, talent, entrepreneurship, sustainability, diversity and inclusion, supply chain, technology, and more will share their stories, insights, and what they've learned from their careers. Students will explore various career paths in the retail industry, meet with dozens of recruiters from their favorite brands, and create visions for their futures, all in just four days!
The NRF Foundation Student Challenge isn't an average business case competition. This unique experience gives undergraduate students at NRF University Member Schools the chance to apply what they've learned in the classroom in a real-world setting. Since its launch, the NRF Foundation Student Challenge has provided nearly $300,000 in scholarship funds to students across the country, and priceless career opportunities.
It's more than an exercise. A handful of teams will earn the chance to present their pitch to leaders from retail's biggest companies, with the top team earning a $7,000 tuition scholarship for each team member.
