Virtual alumni advice panel for graduates set for May 11
Wonder what life is going to be like after graduation?
The TXWES Alumni Association is hosting a virtual alumni advice panel at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11. May graduates will have the opportunity to discuss “what’s next” with Texas Wesleyan alumni on Zoom.
If you are feeling at all overwhelmed, nervous, or even just excited about your own graduation and what life will be like afterwards, this event is for you. Come hear from those who have been in your shoes and ask them questions about their lives and experiences.
Congratulations on your graduation and welcome to the TXWES Alumni Association! We hope you will join us on May 11!
