Senior Series

CVC Senior Series

A five-part event series designed to launch graduating students into life after Wheaton.

Understanding Compensation and Benefits

Deciphering your job package, including compensation and various benefit options, can be overwhelming. Joann Beck, Human Resources professional, will lead this session and be on hand to answer any specific questions you may have. Leave with a greater understanding of what the various options mean and empowered to select the right benefits for you! 

 

Budgeting

Get the tools you need to set up your post-graduation budget. When done right, a budget can provide a lot of freedom as you face student loans, rent, and a host of other expenses. Get equipped at this session to embrace a budget and set one up that is customized for you.

 

Drinking and the Workplace

Networking and socializing in the professional world oftentimes includes alcohol. Navigating this new setting can be exciting and challenging. We want you to feel confident in making choices that align with your values and take into account your specific workplace culture. Join the discussion about how to do this well with professional staff as well as alumni.

 

Eating Well on a Budget

Knowing you will be on a budget after graduation, how do you eat well and avoid endless Top Ramen dinners? It is possible to eat healthy, delicious food while keeping your grocery bill budget-friendly. Learn new cooking methods at the demo, enjoy a tasty meal, and leave with recipes that you can easily replicate. 

 

Life After Wheaton Alumni Panel

A panel of recent young alumni will share the inside scoop on what the first year out of Wheaton is really like and their best advice for making the most of post-graduation. This is always an engaging conversation, so come prepared with all your questions!
