The School has been very proactive to inviting alumni back as guest lecturers, Executive-in-Residence; to participate at the annual career (employer) fair, awards and convocation ceremonies, and, by invitation, to sit on advisory committees and boards. The alumni board has been involved in the interview process for all directors (except the first director of course!).
Class reunions have been informal and mostly off campus. For example, the Class of 1978 enjoyed a 20-year reunion in the school’s dining room hosted by the students. In June 2005, the Class of 1990 toured the School including the new PJ’s Restaurant in the Atrium and had dinner at Woolwich Arms.
Mentorship: The alumni are very passionate about volunteering to mentor, sharing job experiences and have had formal job shadowing programs.
