Events

During the 2023 Winter Quarter, the Waldron Student-Alumni Connections Program will be hosting programming both in person and virtually. Check this page periodically and keep an eye out for emails from the Waldron Connections Program for more information about upcoming events. We hope to see you virtually or in person sometime soon!


An Arts & Sciences Education can lead to anything. That opportunity can be powerful, but also overwhelming. This series of panels features alumni speakers from different majors and industries with atypical paths after they graduated from Northwestern. Alumni will share stories about their student experience, more about their first jobs after graduation, as well as details about what they do today to help current students explore options for themselves.

 

If you're unsure of what career path to choose, these panels are a great opportunity to meet and connect with alumni who have been in your shoes.
