One of the best parts about serving the alumni of Northwestern is my role as an advisor to the senior class experience. In fact, because I oversee the senior class listserv, there is a good chance that anyone who has graduated since 2009 has at least passing familiarity with my name, if not my face.
Planning the Last Lecture is one of those special moments during senior week. The class takes their time in identifying an instructor they want to hear from one more time before they take their purple selves out to connect with the Wildcat universe.
Yet--maybe calling it "The Last Lecture" is a little too final. After all, no one would say that any of us stop learning when a degree is handed to us at commencement in recognition of all those sleepless nights studying.
So, this year, the NAA is going to try something a little different. It's time for a sequel. A "Last Lecture Part Deux" if you will. I'm happy to let you all know that we'll be coming to 5 cities in the next few weeks with a program appropriately titled "The Next Lecture". This is a great opportunity to hear from some experienced career experts about how to approach those first few years on the job. We'll make sure that the food and drink is plentiful and that the information is what you'd expect of a Northwestern event. All you have to do is commit to stopping by after work for a couple of hours.
Here's the schedule, along with links to get more information:
Washington D.C.: December 3rd, 2013 6pm at Hamilton's
San Francisco: December 4th, 2013 6pm at The Republic
Los Angeles: December 5th, 2013 6pm at Busby's East
I hope to see you there!
