The design class of 2009 alumni return to Notre Dame to share industry wisdom with current design students. Alumni give career lectures throughout the morning, critique portfolios in the afternoon, and hang out at Saturday's Crawfish Boil. Students wishing to participate in the portfolio reviews and career advice can sign up throughout the morning session.
The conference kicks off with Mary Kate Fahrenbach Venturini and concludes with a keynote lecture by Eric Kreidler. Students are encouraged to stay for all the talks, but are welcome to pop in and out as their class schedules allow. Refreshments provided by The Career Center.
