Spotlight on Graduates
Alumni Social and Professional Opportunities
“Spotlight on Alumni” is a once a month program featuring one of our successful graduates. The guest alumnus will speak during our Student Success hour so that they will have an opportunity to meet new students, tour the campus and reconnect with their instructors. The Alumnus selected to speak will present a brief overview of their career path after graduation leading up to their current position.
The benefit is not only for current students to learn of graduates’ success but also for the guest alumnus who can then further promote the college to their employer and the industry. Tracking our alumni provides the college with a networking database that can be utilized to build relationships with graduates and their employers to expand our internship sites for current students.
