The College will welcome 27 alumnae back to campus on April 6, 2016 for the “2nd Annual Women’s Leadership Career Summit” sponsored by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.

The summit will be broken into panel discussions led by alumnae and thought leaders, each of which correspond to one of the College’s five schools: School of Business; School of Education; College of Liberal Arts & Sciences; School of Fine & Performing Arts; and School of Science & Engineering.

All students are invited to attend the event and can get practical advice on how to ensure a successful transition from college to career, distinguish themselves to stand out among competitive job candidates and balance work and life demands. These future alumni will also have ample opportunity to ask questions pertaining to their own career aspirations.

Last March, the College welcomed 31 women scholars, the vast majority of whom are SUNY New Paltz alumnae, for the inaugural summit titled “Successful Women: What Does It Take?

“I really think that the openness of the professors here, the diversity of the students and the campus culture allow our personal skills to shine,” said Hillary Lindeman ’11 (Graphic Design).
