Christendom College’s popular “Life on Tap” alumni networking series will return to campus this spring, with five new events hosted by the college’s career and leadership development office. Held on Tuesday evenings in St. Kilian’s Cafe, “Life on Tap” gives students the opportunity to learn about a variety of professions and how their liberal arts educations can help them excel after graduation.
Entering its fourth semester, “Life on Tap” has brought back successful alumni in the fields of business, technology, education and more who become networking contacts for many alumni before they even graduate. This semester, the series will feature speakers in the fields of federal government and civilian military, editing, publishing and writing, religious education, STEM careers, and motherhood.
“Our alumni find success in a never ending range of occupations, and the 2016 “Life on Tap” lineup is a hallmark to that diversity, “says Greg Monroe, Christendom’s director of career and leadership development.
“As the students journey toward graduation, they use these talks to help narrow their fields of interest, and rely on the mentorship of the speakers to guide them toward occupations that they may not have previously considered,” says Monroe.
Alumni speakers this semester will include: Phil O’Herron (’00), post-doc at the Medical University of South Carolina; Alyssa Lombardi (’03), program analyst with the United States Coast Guard; Ben Hatke (’00), #1 New York Times bestselling author; Deacon Sabatino Carnazzo (’04), director of the Institute of Catholic Culture; and Brian Gallagher (’10), director of business intelligence at TAN Books and Saint Benedict Press.
The first “Life on Tap” will occur on Tuesday, January 26, at 7:30 pm in St. Kilian’s Café, featuring alumni speakers in the fields of federal government and civilian military. All students and alumni of the college are encouraged to attend. Each event is free to attend and features refreshments as well.
