Slide Show: Bantam Student Success Program Helps Trinity Students Plan for the Future

Workshops and Panel Discussions Focus on Identifying and Developing Career Prospects

Hartford, Connecticut, October 28, 2015 – During an intensive two-and-a-half-day workshop held on campus and at the Connecticut Science Center October 11-13, 2015, Bantam Student Success participants gained skills and learned strategies to develop their academic and career interests, and identify opportunities to help reach their goals.

Students in their sophomore or junior year developed polished résumés, participated in a workshop to help “build your brand,” learned about the art of networking, and had the opportunity to meet with accomplished Trinity alumni. They also learned about the importance of academic planning, internship experience, and community involvement.

The first day of the program included an introduction and dinner, the second day focused on workshops, and on the third day students could choose between 16 different panel discussions featuring Trinity alumnae. The panels covered a wide variety of career paths, including non-profits, journalism, STEM, and education. Cornelia Parsons Thornburgh ’80, Chair of the Board of Trustees, delivered the program’s keynote address.

The program was hosted by the Career Development Center.
