Just because you’ve graduated doesn’t mean you’re off the team! Many Ranger sports teams are dedicated to keeping their alumni connected and engaged with each other and what’s happening on campus through events, social media outreach, alumni games and more.
BUSINESS AND FINANCE NETWORK
Professor Marc Tomljanovich and a few dedicated alumni formed a Business and Finance Affinity Network, with a launch event in September 2017. The purpose is to offer networking opportunities and other programming throughout the year to supplement the annual Wall Street Semester reception. For more information, feel free to reach out to the Office of Alumni and Parent Communities or to any of the founding alumni volunteers (Sabrina Fruci C’15, Rebecca Kuhar C’96, or Joe Noto C’95) on Drew Connect.
Are you a lawyer or working in the legal field? Maybe you’re in law school or thinking about going. The College Alumni Association invites you to join the Drew Law Network (“DLN”).
This newly formed Affinity Group aims to connect legal professionals from all class years and locations. You can become a DLN member today by signing up through Drew Connect. Also, be on the lookout for details about upcoming meetings, how to get involved in DLN, and information on regional or on-campus events for networking and CLE programs.
For more information about the Drew Law Network, contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations or reach out to any member of the leadership committee (Jonathan Amira C’10, Emily Perks Quinlan C’07, Michael DeLoreto C’06, Don Enright C’93, Laura Hook C’84, Jennifer McGroarty C’06, Allison Siegel C’08, and Chris Walsh C’80) on Drew Connect.
