Each year a diverse group of impactful, accomplished College of Arts + Sciences alumni, who are leaders across industries, return to campus eager to interact with current students.
On Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, during the annual College of Arts + Sciences Connect Conference and Challenge, students can explore the power and range of their liberal arts and sciences education by participating in group sessions and networking with alumni.
Taking place in conjunction with the conference is the Connect Challenge, an idea pitch competition, where students present ideas for creative, business, non-profit, and social good endeavors to a panel of alumni and industry experts. Winners of the challenge will receive a prize package to help bring their idea to life. Students will be awarded their prizes during a special lunch session at the Connect Conference.
