Message from the Alumni Director

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and made some resolutions for 2018.  I hope one of your resolutions will include getting involved at your alma mater.  Over the next few months we have some exciting events planned.  We will be holding the Kean Connect Panel: How to Make a Career Change, which was postponed back in November.  We are still looking for alumni interested in joining the mentoring program.  If you are in our area, stop by for a cup of coffee at Starbucks or a pretzel at Auntie Anne’s in the Miron Student Center. It will be my treat!
