Life After UD: Senior Series

LIFE AFTER UD programs, including the LIFE AFTER UD: SENIOR SERIES exist to help students and young alumni gather the tools needed to navigate life in the real world.

The LIFE AFTER UD: SENIOR SERIES occurs in the fall and spring, and it provides valuable resources exclusively to seniors preparing for post-college life.

Attendees will receive a how–to guide on all things needed for life after graduation. And we mean everything — from paying off student loans to business dinner etiquette. Each workshop also comes with perks, such as giveaways will also feature gift card giveaways for locations featured on the #UDBucketList!

Light refreshments and snacks will be provided. Walk-ins are permitted if space allows.
