Please join the history department on Wednesday, 12 October, as we welcome some alumni back to campus. They will be participating in a panel discussion entitled “What Can You Do With Your History Degree?”, where they’ll share career advice and inspiration in an informal and supportive setting.
The event is open to all, whether you’re a history major or minor, or considering becoming one! Join us at 7pm in Bailey 102.
