First Annual History Department Alumni Forum - Feb. 16, 2018
On Feb. 16, 2018, the History Department held its first Alumni Forum, inviting nine alumni with Dickinson history degrees back to historic Denny Hall to talk to current students, faculty and staff about their diverse career paths. Our alumni guests spoke eloquently and enthusiastically on a range of topics, offering advice on everything from achieving work/life balance, to managing finances in the early years after graduation, to navigating career-path changes. One thing all of our alumni guests agreed on was the continuing relevance of the study of history in today's rapidly changing world, and the value of the knowledge and skills they gained as Dickinson history majors. We hope to make the Alumni Forum an annual event! Read more here.
