What students had to say:

"Thank you so much for hosting a fantastic panel last night. I actually learned a lot more than I thought I would and was able to share it with a lot of my senior friends today, as well! Even though I am going to work at the shipyard (Portsmouth Naval Shipyard), I know that the techniques we talked about last night can still be applied during the hiring process (since I will be in a unique situation with my masters at that time) as well as after my commitment if I decide to work somewhere else!"

Fidelity Investments Experiential Site Visit | October 29

Student Attendance: 13

What students had to say:

"This past Monday, several of my COLA classmates and I were fortunate enough to spend time at Fidelity Investments in Boston. This was a great experience that really opened my eyes to the career possibilities of a Liberal Arts degree in 2018. As a History major, I am perfectly aware of the transferable skills I can bring to any industry, but it was great hearing from recent COLA grads and the paths they took to land in the Financial Services industry. It was particularly great to meet Andrew Tappe, who has been able to leverage his background in Political Science to achieve great success in his executive sales role. Overall, an outstanding and reassuring experience, that I encourage all COLA students to take advantage of in the future."

Government & Public Service Week | November 13-16

New Hampshire CEO Forum | November 7

Student Attendance: 26

What students had to say:

"The CEO panel was really interesting to listen to. It's not everyday that I get to listen to a CEO talk about their daily life or how they got to the position that they are in today. The panelists were diversified by industry which made it interesting to see the differing hard skills and similar soft skills that they each explained to be successful in their industry."

Thank you to all students, alumni, employers, faculty, and campus partners for a tremendous fall semester.
