Playing for a Cure

It gave me the chance to network with high-profile people in the industry.

Michael Grein, MSRE '15, loves participating in the annual Real Estate Games, co-hosted by Kogod. The event brings together over 115 companies for a day of sports competitions at AU that Type I diabetes research.

For Grein, the event is also about forging and building relationships. "It gives AU students and alumni the opportunity to network with people in the industry, rather than having to reach out via phone or e-mail," Grein says.
