The purpose of the DIAC Alumni Day is to facilitate a connection between alums and diverse students. Alums will take the opportunity to advise current students on how to best excel while at the college as well as how to best prepare themselves for a professional life after graduation. Last year’s DIAC Alumni Panel was extremely successful, thoughtful and inspiring, so come out and take advantage of this friendly, supportive event. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to share in this rare opportunity to get inspiration, wisdom, and guidance from recent alumni who are just a few steps out of college – as well as from those who are 15 years beyond their bachelor’s degrees.
