Aren’t you glad that year is over? It seemed like it lasted a lifetime to us.
But, now that the books are closed on 2018, it means that you all are really on to the rest of your lives.
So today, on the 100th anniversary of Boston’s Great Molasses Flood (check it out, it’s a wild ride), we’re here to share some ways that you can make the most out of this coming year and stay in touch with UVM and your classmates.
There are a ton of ways that you can stay in touch, but the easiest one is following your UVM favorites on social media. The UVM Alumni Association is on facebook, and instagram – but don’t stop there.
Follow your favorite professors and academic departments– it might surprise you, but academic twitter is a hopping place! And it’s an easy way to keep in touch with a world that might feel far away from your day to day. Bonus, sometimes you learn cool stuff when you’re wasting time on your phone!
You can also get a jump start on career connections and mentoring opportunities by joining UVM Connect.
This is a network that the UVM Alumni Association has created just for UVM connected alumni and professionals, where they can post job openings, connect with potential employers, and find mentors in their field and location.
It’s worth checking out – there might be a UVM alum down the street from you with your dream job – and they might be willing to meet for coffee and tell you how they got there!
Anyways, those are just a few ideas for how you all can keep in touch as the years keep coming (And they don’t stop coming).
We’re excited for everything on the horizon, for us and for you. Hope your January is off to a fantastic start.
