Land O’Lakes sponsors Pro Day for 575 student-athletes
The Land O’Lakes brand was front and center for 575 Gopher student-athletes at Pro Day on October 17, 2016, at TCF Bank Stadium. As the premier sponsor, Land O’Lakes hosted the entire event.
Pro Day offers students the opportunity to get professional development advice from local organizations while also discussing internship and career opportunities. Land O’Lakes, the naming sponsor of the new Land O’Lakes Center for Excellence, provided a breakout session about common career mishaps and how to avoid them. Another presentation to 100 freshman athletes focused on self-exploration and how to use personal strengths. Student-athletes also were able to get professional headshots taken to use on their LinkedIn pages.
The number of organizations at the event, which started in 2014, has grown from 45 to 75 in just three years.
