We are excited to announce that the date for the 3rd Annual Alumni Weekend is January 27th, 2018!
First and second year WISE RP students will have the opportunity to interact and ask questions in small group settings to get to know WISE RP alumni. Each year current students rave about how much they have learned from the alumni and had positive experiences.
Here is what our 2017 Alumni Team had to say:
- "Returning to WISE RP was a fantastic experience. Being able to give real answers/advice about what happens after college truly made an impact on the girls. I was able to prove through my experiences that the moments in college that feel crippling turn out to be the best moments for your future!" -Stephanie Pierce
- "Alumni weekend was a great opportunity for me to give back to the community that shaped much of my college experience. I was able to share what I learned during my college experience and give advice I wish I heard as a freshman/sophomore. It felt so good to know I was helping the community. Several students have reached out to me over the past few months with additional questions about what comes after college, and it feels great to know I can still help WISE members, even after graduation." -Alicia Speck
- "Having the opportunity to speak to some of the women in WISE during Alumni Weekend blew me away. They were so strong and had gone through so much to get to where they were, they gave me hope--not just for the future of the STEM fields but the future in general. I'm still not sure how much of an impact my words may have had on them, but I am sure that as long as the WISE RP family continues to grow with such talented and driven individuals, each of its members will continue to succeed, not matter what obstacles they may face." -Maria Mate-Kodjo
