Bestowing of the Kente Alumnae Reunion
Communication & Technology "Feedback & Fun"
An Invitation to all Communication and Technology Alumnae
Few things are more fun that having the "Remember when…?" or "Whatever happened to…?" conversations with important people from your past. It's about connecting, but it's also about sharing how life has changed.
That is why the faculty of the Communication & Technology Department and the Office of Alumnae Relations are hosting a reunion and networking event this September.
The C&T faculty is eager to hear from our alums about their career experiences. We are always exited and proud when we hear about the career successes of our alums. We know we have alums doing amazing work in a variety of fields, and we want to hear about it! Your accomplishments inspire us as faculty and give us encouraging stories to tell our current and future students.
We welcome alumnae who graduated with a major in Professional Communication (PCM), Communication, Management and Technology (CMT), Interactive Media Design (IMD), or Computing and Information Technology (CIT) to participate in one of two "Feedback and Fun" events:
Besides re-connecting with communication faculty and sister alums, you can serve in an advisory role. "The majors that serve the communication professions are challenged by constantly changing technology," says Professor Jill Moore, " who better than our alums to advise us about the best practices and technology applications in the contemporary workplace?"
