National Scholarship Workshops
Beginning at the end of March, Ashleen Williams will be hosting several scholarship workshops to help students with their applications. The workshops will include working to craft personal statements, choosing recommenders, and developing competitive resumes.
As part of the Croft Institute’s ongoing efforts to connect current students with our amazing network of alumni, the institute began a series of video talks by Croft alumni hosted in the building’s Gerald M. Abdalla Boardroom. The “Alumni Talks” series has proven to be popular amongst students, who come to each session equipped with plenty of questions about how to find a career after college, and how to use their experience with Croft to make the most of their options. The Alumni Talks allow for interaction between Croft alumni and students to be more regular and easier to coordinate by using Croft’s new video-conferencing system.
