Kania Young Alumni Day

One of the biggest events in the Kania School, Young Alumni Day each year features several recent graduates who are working in a range of business fields. They return to Scranton for a day to offer advice on topics like job searches, interviews, resumes, networking, and internships. This event is always well received, as students feel comfortable talking to business alumni who are relatively close in age. Young Alumni Day is one of many events offered through our Center for Practical Learning.
