Student/Alumni Homecoming Brunch
Daemen College alumni and students had the opportunity to learn more about each other and network at the first homecoming brunch held Nov. 7 as part of the college’s homecoming festivities.
Co-sponsored by the Offices of Alumni Relations and Career Services, the event kicked off with the 35 participants completing a speed networking questionnaire to provide career information to those in attendance.
Following brunch, Kathryn Graf, director of alumni relations, introduced Amy Wesolowski ’89, president of the Buffalo Chapter of the Alumni Association, who invited alumni to share inspirational stories about their career journey after graduation. Business cards were then exchanged for future mentoring opportunities.
“I was amazed at the turn out by alumni to support students at our first brunch for the mentoring program,” said Wesolowski. “By attending this event, it made me realize the strong impact Daemen has had on me and inspired me to give back by serving as a mentor to current students. This is another way to be a part of the Daemen family.”
Dr. Maureen Millane, associate vice president for community engagement, creativity and career development, was pleased with the success of the event. “The brunch was a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with several alumni who took the time to participate in the event,” she said. “Based on very positive evaluations, we anticipate this becoming an annual event and a new Daemen tradition.”
