Kelley Alumni Initiatives To Connect Students & Alumni to Address Covid-19

A number of Kelley Alumni have begun to create opportunities to help students and graduates who have had experience opportunities impacted by COVID 19. We encourage you to participate in both!  Please feel free to share feedback with our office about your experiences.

Alex Wisniewski, former UCS peer coach and IU Student Body President, has launched the initiative below on Linkedin:

One year ago, I was starting my FINAL finals week and I was ECSTATIC! In parallel, I was FREAKING out because I was about to #graduate#movehome, and #startmyfirstjob. Transitioning to “normal life” after graduation is hard. No one really talks about it because everyone handles it so differently. With everything going on in the world right now, I can only imagine what soon-to-be grads are experiencing.

A group of recent grads from across the country came together to figure out what we could to support the shoes we filled not long ago. We’re not experts but we are hoping to collectively provide some advice and support.

Please tag or share this with any soon-to-be or recent graduate you know. Our survey ask about how they’re feeling, what they’re worried about, and what questions they have. Our group will use responses to drive content and opportunities to support graduates. Thank you!
