Lunch with an alumni is a new series for undergraduate sociology students to have a chance to chat with an alumni who has taken their sociology degree and used it to build a career. It will be informal conversations over a brown bag lunch- so if your schedule is free, come join us and hear about how your degree is one of the most flexible out there and the special advantages that having a sociology degree can bring!
There will be pizza!
Our first lunch will be October 26, in 2108 ASY (the sociology undergraduate lounge) from 12pm-1pm with 2015 alumnus Lance Brooks.
