SVSU to host entrepreneur and author Michael Drew

Entrepreneur and author Michael Drew will speak at Saginaw Valley State University Thursday, March 31‌, to share his insights on how students can make the most of their college experience.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in Curtiss Hall Banquet Room A; it will be preceded by a networking reception from 5 to 6 p.m.

Drew's talk will introduce a set of nine principles on how students can make the most out of their college experience, and ultimately land the job of their dreams. The nine principles focus on networking and thinking ahead.

While attending Central Michigan University full time, Drew has still managed to find time for business endeavors. He has worked his way through three tech startups, one of which was sold in 2015. He serves as a marketing team leader and analyst at Quizzle through Bankrate, Inc., a leading publisher, aggregator, and distributor of personal finance content on the Internet. Drew is also the co-founder of GoGarden, a social relationship manager application.

He is also the author of the book "Student Dream Job," which will be released this summer.
