The group also provides a social network for new employees to improve quality of life both inside and outside the Lab. While the group's activities are primarily for new hires, any employee is welcome to join.

Recent College Grads group of LLNEN

The Recent College Graduate (RCG) subgroup of LLNEN focuses on the special concerns of new hires who have just graduated from college. The group's goals are to
  • Provide a way for recent college graduates to meet, talk, and connect with other people in similar life situations
  • Provide a forum through which recent college graduates can have access to resources and ask questions about their new lives both inside and outside of MIT Lincoln Laboratory
The group holds monthly brown bag lunches, with guest speakers every other month. Previous speakers have covered a variety of topics, including
  • Military 101
  • Designing Your Financial Roadmap
  • Recruiting and the Community Outreach Program
  • A Dozen Pieces of Advice for New Employees
  • What Were Lincoln Laboratory and Technology like in 1964?

     •  Lincoln Laboratory Technical Women's Network
     •  Lincoln Laboratory Hispanic/Latino Network
     •  Lincoln Laboratory Veterans’ Network
     •  Lincoln Employees' African American Network
     •  Out Professional Employee Network
