Welcome to Afterword! We’re so glad you’re here.
Or maybe you are nostalgic because the ‘real world’ is happening now. Some next level Sunday Scaries, if you ask us.
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.
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!
- Fellow recent alums and how they spent their first year after graduation. Check out a few of our most recent profiles from the Class of 2017 – William Lemos and Cara Stapleford.
- Feel great about being a UVM alum. That means we’ll even take you out to lunch, give some stuff away, and generally keep you entertained and informed.
Are you excited? We sure are.
