Event Date


Graduating? We got you! Join your Cal Aggie Alumni Association for discussions on life after college. We’ll be focusing each session on the things we wish we knew about post-grad life: making friends, job searching, financial literacy, and taking a gap year before going to graduate school. Check out the details and recordings about each session below.


Making Friends and Building Community

Overview: Once college is over, it can be difficult to meet new people when you aren't going to class, living on campus, or attending club events. Learn from a panel of recent alumni on how to build your community. Whether you are moving back home, staying around Davis, or moving somewhere new, our panelists will be sharing their experiences.
