Purchase Alumni in the Classroom

Purchase College faculty are always looking for new ways to enhance the program experience and augment their instruction by bringing real-world practitioners into the classroom (whether in person or via Zoom).

Our Alumni in the Classroom program provides opportunities for alumni guest speakers to give current students a firsthand look at career possibilities and life after Purchase.
