By all accounts, the Alumni 360 events during Alumni Weekend 2019 were a success! Over 12 professions and departments were represented, at 12 venues across the campus, starting on Friday and concluding Sunday morning. Over 300 Oakwood alums and students participated.
Alumni 360 was a great beginning to something unique that will transform alumni engagement with our current students forever.
Alumni 360 is one of the Big 3 initiatives from the Office of Alumni Relations launched this year, where Oakwood alumni circle back on campus to network for their career and profession, and also help our current students by providing mentoring, internships or shadowing experiences. With events like Alumni 360 and many departments already requiring students in their curriculum to experience an internship, the goal is to ensure every student who attends and/or graduates from Oakwood will have had at least one internship or shadowing experience before leaving Oakwood.   If you would like to participate in our Alumni 360 next year, join our mentoring program, or can provide an internship or shadowing experience for our students, please contact either the Office of Alumni Relations: 256-726-7039, or Career Connections: 256-726-8495 today!
