You’re invited to join us at a Big Red Roundtable!

We are excited to introduce a new career-focused program that Denison is rolling out for recent graduates. It’s a unique gathering of Denisonians in a small-group setting that gives younger alums the chance to get to know and learn from their more experienced counterparts. In conjunction with the college’s Austin E. Knowlton Center for Career Exploration and under the umbrella of the larger Denison Connecting program, we are calling these particular opportunities Big Red Roundtables.

The first two Big Red Roundtables we’re holding in the Central Ohio area are taking place during the lunch hour on November 30 and December 5.

The first Roundtable will feature Mary Turocy ’05, a director for the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Mary will join you for lunch at noon on Friday, November 30, at Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus in downtown Columbus. Discussions can range from public policy to state budgets, from civil rights to higher education, from international development to human rights, and much more.

Because Big Red Roundtables are intentionally designed to be small, personal and informal, participation is limited to seven people for each lunch. Given that there is a lot of interest in this type of opportunity means that you’ll want to want to register quickly to reserve your place. Both sessions will run until around 1 or 1:30 p.m.
