Career Connections with Alumni is back for 2024

Alumni and Parent Engagement looks forward to hosting students and alumni for lunch and networking.

After years of pandemic lock down, Career Connections with Alumni (formerly Careers for Pioneers) came back and was a rousing success. The Alumni and Parent Engagement office is proud to host this event again in 2024!

Last March, over 100 current students and alumni participated in a fun, casual networking event over lunch. Afterward, Jackson Shea, Class of 1989, said, “Always a pleasure to talk to students and bolster their confidence and ensure they are capitalizing on all the assets they have. Sometimes little things get overlooked like the importance of hobbies when viewing job search through a traditional and rigid lens.”

Here’s what other participants had to say last year;

“It was great practice making connections and having conversations about work experience.” - C.D., Class of 2024

“I loved talking with the students and getting to connect with other alumni in my field.” - J.F., Class of 2019

“By the end of the event, I received tons of connections that I hope to build a continuing relationship as my career develops.” - S.S., Class of 2024

“I always find this event rewarding, not just in feeling that I am able to give useful guidance and reassurance to the students for their future, but also to learn from them in order to stay current in student interests, needs, and challenges.” - S.O., Class of 1975

“I will follow up with networking contacts to seal the deal!” - E.L., Class of 2026

This year, the Alumni and Parent Engagement Office is adding a new element to the programming; Alumni will have a chance to network with each other before and after lunch in our Alumni Hospitality Suite!

We are seeking L&C Alumni who work on campus in any capacity. Please join us for lunch and a chance to assist students with their career path. To aid in our planning, please rsvp by February 23, 2024.
