Class of 2012 prepares for the real world

By Lisa Belgam on January 23, 2012

Hannah Guy is a senior intern in the Office of Admission. She shared the following post with me:

Last weekend the Class of 2012 was invited to attend Real World, an event designed to help current seniors prepare for life after Colgate. Over 100 alumni and 500 current seniors participated in the weekend. Throughout the weekend there were speeches from distinguished graduates, panels on a variety of topics from personal finance to career options, mock interviews, and networking events. After attending the journalism and publishing panel, I met up with Elisa Benson ’06 to talk about Benson’s job as an editor at Seventeen magazine. All of the alumni emphasized how much Colgate graduates love to help each other out in the professional world. It’s a great feeling to be a part of a community so dedicated to maintaining the Colgate bond.
