Alumni Office Hours

Each term, we bring students and alumni together for the Alumni Panel event series.

Throughout the term, alumni from various fields will host small group sessions providing undergrads and grads an opportunity to expand their networks and career potential. 

If you are interested in hosting a session, please email the Alumni Engagement Officer for more information.
