The Stratford University Inaugural Regional Alumni Mixer was held at the Woodbridge campus yesterday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm. We had 54 attendees including 34 Stratford alumni from the Woodbridge, Falls Church and Alexandria campuses. The graduates represented all programs and some received their degrees as far back as 2010! It was a pleasure to welcome Greg DeFlorio, Stephane Hainaut and Valentin Mihail from the new MGM at National Harbor who shared their professional insights and opportunities.
Thank you to all who assisted behind the scenes and at the event, especially WB Chef Jennifer Godlewski and Ken Jenkins from the WB Admissions team along with John Kerbaugh, campus Dean from Alexandria and our own campus Dean, Sharron Guillett, and Director, Ovette Finnell, who presided over the drinks table to ensure the wine was flowing (responsibly) with the hors d'oeuvres!
Peter Bartell, Career Services Manger from Falls Church, reminded the grads that along with the shared fun and memories the mixer was a great opportunity to network! All of the grads and guests had a chance to share where they are working and describe themselves with one word! To add to the fun, lots of raffle winners left with Stratford swag provided by Bryant Johnson and the Stratford University online store.
We look forward to building on this momentum to plan future events with our wonderful and enthusiastic alumni!
