Young Alumni Sub Committee

We know that it is important to engage all Alumni, whether they graduated 20 years ago, or last year. When you are a new graduate, staying connected is not always top of mind so we have formed a Young Alumni Sub Committee. This group is comprised of Alumni from 2019 and 2020 and headed by Georgie Tsiolis ’20. It is our hope that in the future we can grow this program to encompass more years.
