Pizza with the Pros

This was a chance for current students to network with alumni professionals in several areas including:

  • Business
  • Digital Media
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • IT
  • Manufacturing
  • Marketing

The event received high marks from both students and alumni who gave of their time to share their expereinces and knowledge.

Pizza with a Pros participant Trudy Robinson said what she liked best about the event was, in her words, “Learning about the pros’ careers and what is available for me.  She added, “This is my first time and it is great!”

Another participant said, “I like that you had pre-prepared questions” while another said, “I received insight on the career that I am pursuing and reassured me that I still want to pursue it.”

A student who attended at the urging of her Business 110 instructor said of the event, “I like that we were able to be more intimate at the tables and kind of have a one-on-one.” 

We added more time at the tables in response to feedback last year.  Even with that, one person wanted 30 minutes more with professionals!
