But how do you go about networking? We’re here to help you with that.

The event features speed networking with alumni, followed by a dessert reception and open networking. This will allow you the opportunity to meet with successful alumni in a group setting and 1:1.
At this event, you will have the chance to get to know Assumption alumni with valuable experienced in a wide variety of fields.
