“Our full slate of sessions will offer something for everyone, and there are also opportunities to learn about getting more involved in the Smeal Alumni Society.”

Alumni may choose from a number of sessions throughout the day, which will include opportunities to hear from faculty members about current research and to engage with students and other alumni on challenges and trends in various program areas.

There will also be Smeal Alumni Society task force breakout sessions, opportunities to generate discussion about topics like work-life balance, and much more.
