We know it’s only been a month since you graduated, and you aren’t feeling nostalgic for UVM yet…
…or maybe you are nostalgic because the ‘real world’ is happening now. Some next level Sunday Scaries, if you ask us.
But first, you are probably wondering what this blog is all about.
Well, contrary to popular UVM lore – we’re not asking you for anything . This isn’t a secret trick to ask you for money or barrage your inbox with useless information.
This blog is the afterword to your UVM story. We’re here to keep you connected to UVM, Burlington, and to your classmates. And, we’re here to help you write your next chapter.
We’re recent grads like you. We work at the UVM Foundation and Alumni Association and our job is to help you.
Unlike your parents, we don’t expect you to know everything right now. You’re under a lot of pressure to plan the rest of your life (whether you have a job, a place to live, or neither) and we want to give you a place to feel at home.
We’ve been doing this for the past two years with the Classes of 2015 and 2016, so we are really excited to bring you in, talk to you, and be as helpful as we can.
With that in mind, during Senior Week, we set up shop in Alumni House and asked many of you a few questions about your upcoming year, and recorded your answers with a professional podcasting microphone. Pretty neat.
Post-grad life is often very uncertain, and the reality sets in quickly that you are now really in charge of your life. Luckily, your classmates all feel the same way. And trust us, not everyone has a plan yet for what they are going to do next.
So take a minute and listen below to hear your classmates’ answers recorded live during senior week. Enjoy!
Stay tuned in the coming months for all of this helpful content and more!
- Lots of career, job, and grad school advice, tips, and resources. And we’ll skip the generic stuff and give you relevant advice.
- UVM events with fellow alumni.
- Showcase examples of other alumni and how they spent their first year after graduation. Check out a few of our most recent profiles – Octavio Araujo, Lyndi Wieand, and Scott Bailey.
- Feel great about being a UVM alum. That means we’ll do some silly things, give some stuff away, and generally keep you entertained and informed.
We’ll be right here.
