The Alumni Network celebrated it’s 4th annual Winter Reunion December 21st at Duke’s La Jolla and we had an overwhelming number of 100 alumni in attendance. Alumni had an opportunity to connect with old friends and build new friendships through facilitated networking fire starters. Thanks to our Southwest Airlines sponsor, we were able to raffle 5 roundtrip airline tickets to alumni.
The month of December the Alumni Network offered two FAFSA/Dream Act renewal workshops. We had 8-10 students attend each workshop. One of our workshops was co-facilitated by San Diego City College Office of Outreach, which provided our community college alumni with an added option of receiving guidance on the transfer process and course selection. We hope to continue to partner with local community colleges to offer support to our community college alumni.
We are currently working on offering our first pre-professional conference for our rising seniors and alumni June 22nd at SDG&E Innovation Center. Our conference titled, Level Up: Building Your Brand, will focus on providing our student with the tools to shift their narrative from focusing solely on obtaining their first job after graduation, to empowering them to proactively design their careers and lives in ways that help them align with meaningful opportunities across their lifetime. We will be releasing an opportunity for workshop submissions on our website soon, stay tuned!
