Meet two alumni from SLU who will talk about what they have been up to since their studies.
Alumni Talks is a webinar series with the opportunity to listen to alumni who will share stories from their time as students, talk about what they have been doing since they graduated and give you a sneak preview of what they are doing today. This is the last one for this time, we plan to be back with more soon.
