On Tuesday, October 28th, eight Wake Forest alumni joined together on campus to be a part of a new initiative put on by the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD). The intent of The Senior Summit: Navigating What’s Next was to help 30+ seniors engage in this process in the supportive environment of alumni interested in investing personally and professionally in their career development while sharing a meal. Thanks to our alumni volunteers for this event! We could not do it without you.
