Quick – Talk Fast!



The networking happened, and it was speedy! Undergrad Crusaders from Rhode Island College, the University of Rhode Island, and the Community College of Rhode Island met and mingled with over a dozen Crusade alumni professionals at our first ever Alumni Speed Networking Night on Thur Jan 10. They talked about school, work, life, and everything in between, swapping stories and making connections. Thanks to these 13 alumni volunteers for sharing their experiences, insights, and advice with Crusaders who are making their way through college:
