MJD: Now Full-time

DUSPers, Take Alums Out to Lunch (For Free!)

last semester, Molly Ekerdt (MCP’09) came up with a great idea to facilitate networking by and among DUSPers: current students can take an alumnus (or practicing planner) out to lunch, reimbursable up to $20 by DUSP Student Council. students have taken advantage of this for career advice, thesis interviews, and, well, plain old free lunch. Alums, update your Infinite Connection accounts so you can be treated to lunch.

DUSP Careers Website: Evolving (+ More on the Way)

check out the work Sloan Dawson (MCP’10) has done, along with MJD, to begin updating the Careers website. of note is the weekly News + Events page. more changes to come as the Alumni-Student Group keeps moving!
