CONNECT Chats: "Adulting"

  • Thursday, August 27, 2020
  • 7:00 PM- 8:00 PM
  • ZOOM (Link will be e-mailed prior to event)
A continuation of the CONNECT Alumni Career Day series, CONNECT Chats provide Schreyer Scholars an opportunity to connect with Scholar alumni with experience in a given field or with a certain expertise.

Adulting: the practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the accomplishment of mundane but necessary tasks.

Don’t worry about not having everything figured out! In this program, Scholar alumni will offer tips on how to balance work or school with personal responsibilities and other interests. They’ll offer suggestions on making a positive impression in a new job or graduate program as well how to figure out living situations, making friends in a new location, and more.

This event is open to all class years.

Our panelists:

- Nathaniel DeRose '04 Bus: In-House Counsel, Equitrans Midstream Corporation

- Jackie McGirr '83 Lib: Senior Manager/Director - State Government Relations, Verizon

- Matt Mignogna '18 Lib, '18g Edu: Academic Advisor, Penn State Smeal College of Business

The ZOOM link will be provided to registered Scholars via their Penn State e-mail at approx. 4:00 pm the day of the panel.

The Schreyer Honors College takes pride in organizing meaningful and rewarding learning opportunities for all Scholars. When you RSVP for an event, you are making a commitment to attend, and the college expects you to honor that commitment.

The Schreyer Integrated Undergraduate Graduate program allowed me to pursue a master’s degree while finishing my bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering. Extending my commitment to research allowed me to confirm my desire for a career as a physician scientist.
