Whether it’s an alumnus returning to campus to hold a career workshop or making a quick introduction, the Hamilton Network is an invaluable resource.
The Hamilton Network
Whether they serve as a corporate CEO, a world-renowned artist, or a civil rights pioneer, Hamilton alumni return to campus regularly, maintaining ties with former teachers and meeting with students in the classroom, the Career Center, or over a cup of coffee. And in the months following graduation, alumni are there again, welcoming recent graduates to a new city and helping them make personal and professional contacts that launch successful careers.
