New Alumni Kick-Off

On Saturday, January 27 we held the first annual New Alumni Kick-off for graduating students and alumni one year out. The annual event showcases what happens when classes end and your alumni journey begins! Once you cross the stage at Convocation Hall you will transition from being Rotman students to becoming Rotman alumni.

What does that mean? What’s next? What are the alumni benefits? How do you leverage the alumni network? How do you stay connected and involved?

We discussed how to:

  • Leverage your Rotman network across all programs
  • Access your alumni benefits
  • Continue your Rotman involvement
