Wake Forest Connects – New York City

Today’s Daily Deac is an invitation for New York City Wake Forest parents and families.  One of my colleagues in Employer Relations is sponsoring an event in NYC and wants all area Deac families to know they are welcome – encouraged, even! – to attend.  Here is the text of her email invitation below.


It’s no surprise that many of our students want to live and work in New York City—it’s an energetic, vibrant city that offers growth and challenging professional opportunities for our students.  With this is mind, we are excited to let you know about Wake Forest Connects – NYC.  

On June 5th, we will host a networking event designed to help connect current students with Wake Forest alumni, parents, and friends who live and work in the New York area. The event will kick-off with an industry panel who will share advice, tips and strategies for effective networking.

Following the panel discussion, students will have an opportunity to participate in structured networking (in small groups of 8-10) with a wider group of industry professionals.  The evening will end with an open networking reception for all participants at the LCL: Bar and Kitchen (co-sponsored by Scott Gerber P ’17).
