Did You Know?

When in-person events were canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis, our Alumni Office quickly moved to a new model for engagement: virtual events. Between April and June, 21 virtual events were held, in which 67 alumni participated as volunteer speakers and panelists, covering a wide variety of topics including managing stress; finding a job during COVID; navigating a bear/bull market in a series on finances; and exploring different career tracks in a series on the entertainment industry. Additional events included writing workshops, a panel with former athletes, a mental health discussion; and a virtual networking workshop. Turnout was impressive with 616 alumni and community members attending.
