On Thursday, February 6 and Saturday, February 8, the Office of Students & Alumni will be hosting a retreat to prepare 2020 graduating students for entering “life post-graduate school.” This annual (S)ending retreat is mandatory for all 2020 graduates. During this time, you will have the opportunity to interact with each other, alumni from your degree programs, and a variety of practical helps and workshops as you anticipate the coming endings, new beginnings, and the ever pressing job search.
