April News & Events Update

Monthly News & Events – April 2016

In honor of the month of April, does anyone still have a copy of the fake Daily D from April 1, 1982, (done by the Jack O’Lantern)? It was the issue distributed across Campus that announced that the College had decided to close the fraternities. Let us know!

Our goal with these monthly emails is to help keep us connected to each other, our class and the college.  As we continue to fine tune our format, we welcome your input.  Please let us know what works, what doesn’t, and what you’d like to see included.

Happy Spring!

Joining Anita in India are two of her five children, Devki and Malvika. To read more about their adventures visit their blog. Devki and Malvika are also contributing, so the blog site is a good read for older children/teens interested in learning about life and the education system in India.

CALLOUT: Have you done a 180 with your career path?

In our Spring Class of ’85 Newsletter we will be highlighting classmates who have made a career “pivot”.  If your career is now very different from what you started with many years ago, please send us your story – where you are, what made you change and the highs and lows of this new career.

If you are considering a career change of any type, check out these free lunchtime webinar from the Alumni Office:

Strategies for a Successful Career Pivot

Whether you’re looking to switch jobs, move ahead in the one you have, or transition to a whole new field, our experts will help you take stock, identify your strengths, tell your story, and develop the competencies you need to plan your next move.

The series begins on Wednesday, March 23 from noon-1 p.m. (ET) with “Telling Your Career Story: The Art of Narrative.” Paul Argenti, professor of corporate communication, will share the techniques he teaches at the Tuck School of Business to prepare you to tell your own story no matter what questions you’re asked or how pressured the situation may be.
