First Year Gala
Thursday, September 5, 2019Time
College Center Villard Room
The Career Development Office, Office of Alumnae/i Engagement, Vassar Business Club, and Vassar Finance Club are excited to announce our second annual First Year Gala. This reception is designed to initiate connections (and hopefully friendships) between first-years and seniors who have shared academic and professional interests, across a wide variety of industries. It represents an opportunity for seniors to share their summer research and internship experiences with first year students to help them begin considering how to make the most of their time at and beyond Vassar. This event is open to all class years, but is primarily designed to connect seniors who are preparing to leave Vassar to first year students who are just beginning their time at Vassar. In this way, it helps prepare our seniors to become great alumnae/i mentors and it helps our first year students begin exploring the ways to make the most of their time at Vassar. Come learn about the wide variety of Vassar-connected opportunities that our students pursue in their summers and get your questions answered about majors, internships, careers, and more!
Students are encouraged to dress their best for this event. Light refreshments will be on hand to enjoy throughout the event. We will be using the Villard Room and Rose Parlor for this event. Advance RSVP on Handshake is strongly encouraged to ensure enough refreshments are on hand and so that we can print name tags in advance of the event. We look forward to having you join us!
