Serve on a Career Panel
We invite alumni to participate in career panels in which alumni and professionals from various fields visit our campus to discuss the path they have taken to get where they are in their own careers and provide tips and advice. These events provide an excellent opportunity for you to meet students with great potential, and for students to learn about career possibilities, and to get their questions answered about different career options.
