Interacting with alumni gives students opportunities for networking, chances to explore internship and employment opportunities, and insights on what life might be like after their time on Mayflower Hill. In turn, alumni benefit from reconnecting with their alma mater and giving back in a way that is personal and meaningful. The True Life After Colby program provides students and alumni with the platform to make these important connections. Each semester an alumnus/alumna returns to campus to have lunch with a small group of students interested in their career field and to discuss the opportunities and challenges they faced as they made their path through the “real world.”
True Life After Colby speakers have included:
Michael Cuzzi ’98, senior vice president, VOX Global
Mitchell Bartkiewicz ’07, assistant principal and science teacher, KIPP Memphis University Middle School
Gillian Gutierrez ’00, U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau
Adam Cote ’95, officer in the Maine National Guard; Portland lawyer
