This series of events is coordinated to help seniors prepare for their life after Macalester. Topics are chosen based on student interest and we work with campus partners to bring the topics to life. Panels of young alums, lunch, on campus, and off campus resources are provided to introduce seniors to networking, self advocacy and community. Topics in 2019-2020 include: Budgeting and Finance, Values and Purpose, The Job Search, Relationships and Family, Advocacy and Resilience, Networking and Finding Community.
