We know it’s a difficult time to be a student—the pandemic is disrupting all aspects of life, and the challenging economy is impacting job and internship experiences. We thought 2008 grads who graduated from Amherst during the Great Recession could relate. In this pop-up series your questions will take center stage. Join us as we:
--learn about the challenges 2008 grads faced in early career experiences
--explore how they’re navigating work during the pandemic
--and get industry-specific considerations for what’s ahead
Our second 2008 alum guest is Tosin Onafowokan, a Product Manager at Vudu who is responsible for their iOS and Android apps, Theater at Home initiative, and other exploratory technologies. Check out his alumni directory and LinkedIn profiles, and then let us know if you have any questions you'd like to ask him during our chat!
In the time of uncertainty and anxiety, poetry brings us hope, inspiration and reflection. Have you been reading or writing poems in the pandemic? Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community? Please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/AqT9ofE76gL9edCp6 or email your response to Haoran Tong '23 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome all students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents of Amherst College to participate! Help us lead a poetic life to overcome the difficult circumstances. We plan to compile all submissions into an anthology titled "Amherst Poetry in the Pandemic."
