Alum Update

UHP Young Alumni Panel

The UHP is excited to announce our upcoming Young Alumni Panel, “What’s Up Alum- One Year Out”! UHP alum, like our current students, are pretty awesome. They have a host of experiences, wisdom, and career expertise to share, and just recently confronted the post-grad “What am I doing” dilemma that many juniors and seniors face when it comes time to make career decisions. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and network with some amazing alums and celebrate what makes our UHP community so special. So join us on Thursday, April 23 at 6 PM in the Club Room. Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP here.

Wonder who’s going to be there?
