Alumni Council



Helping Students, Recent Grads, Prepare for Life After Bates
Members of the Alumni Council, in cooperation with the Alumni Office and the Office of Career Services, offered two very helpful programs for Bates seniors and recent graduates this past winter.

In early January, the council helped facilitate a reception in Boston for students and recent graduates attending the Boston Recruiting Consortium. They were joined by council members and Bates alumni employed by companies recruiting at the consortium. Approximately fifteen alumni and thirty-five students and recent graduates took part in the reception.

"I learned about some of the companies, but also gained a lot of confidence by meeting alumni," said one senior. "The alumni have all gone through what I'm going through this year with my job search -- it was reassuring to know that with a little hard work and some help, I'll be OK."

Later in January, council members worked with the Office of Career Services and the Alumni Office to put together an on-campus gathering in the Frye Street Union for interested seniors and juniors. The program was a panel discussion covering several career sectors and elements of a successful job search.

In foreground, Rosalyn Scudder Harrold '59, Janet Face Glassman '71, Nancy Higgins '81, and Mary Capaldi '88 (partially obscured by the stack of empty pizza boxes!) were four of the Alumni Council members on hand to meet with more than one hundred Bates students in the Frye Street Union for a job search panel held in January.
