The Power of the St. Lawrence Network

The Power of the St. Lawrence Network


(relaxing guitar music) – So, SLU Connect is a
platform that connects our current students with our alumni base. So what we’re doing here
is giving our students from St. Lawrence a leg
up to compete and win the best jobs and internships. – You want to do stuff that’s in demand. – I think I can attest to how
valuable it’s been for me. I’ve gotten two internships
directly from going on SLU Connect-DC the first time. – [Jennifer] The goal of SLU
Connect is to immerse students in the culture of the area
that they’re going to. So, we started in Washington,
D.C. and now we’ve evolved into Albany, New York and
into the mountain states. – I feel like this experience solidified my desire to go to law
school to use a legal degree in order to better
myself within government. – It was very intimidating I
guess speaking to them at first but then just even within
the first 10 seconds of speaking to all our alumni you know they weren’t really
interested in what we wanted to do right off the bat. They wanted to hear
about where we were from, what our experience at
St. Lawrence was like, and just having that common ground of them having gone to St.
Lawrence just made them so much more approachable and so much more easy to talk to. (group chatter) – The ability to connect
with so many different people from St. Lawrence on so
many different levels and get to learn about
so many different fields and just really become confident in myself and like my ability to get
a job after I graduate is it’s incredible.
