San Francisco State’s International City/County Management Association student chapter attend SF State Night at the San Francisco Giants

icma San Francisco State University’s (SFSU) International City/County Management Association (ICMA) student chapter members from the Public Administration program attended “SFSU Night” at the San Francisco Giants game last Monday, April 9, 2018. It was a fun-filled night of networking with classmates while cheering on their favorite SF team! ICMA was fortunate enough to receive a welcome message shout-out prior to the game reading: “MPA out to play! Go ICMA!” on the big screen. The student giveaway of the night was an SFSU Gator beanie sporting SFSU’s school colors! It was a close and exciting game, but unfortunately, the Giants did not win. Despite this, ICMA students had a fun evening getting the opportunity to bond and connect with fellow SFSU MPA classmates!  icma 2
