Career Network Moves Ahead with Fall Events

Recap: Four Cities, One Night

Alumni Relations and the Career Network involved several hundred alumni in recent regional receptions, all of which took place Oct. 5. Locations for the events were Seattle, Portland, Denver and the Bay Area (3 receptions).

Such a positive turnout bodes well for future regional events and teaches us something about Willamette alumni: They're everywhere!

Alumni interested in helping with future regional events should feel free to contact alumni relations at alumni@willamette.edu.
