Life After College: Expectation vs. Reality

Join us for a conversation with a panel of three alumni from different backgrounds and career paths to explore how Pepperdine, it's Christian mission, their own faith, and other factors have contributed to their life journey since graduation. What does it mean to live Pepperdine's mission in the workforce? What role does faith play in the careers of our alumni, and how does that faith inform decision making and help them find purpose and significance on the job? Additionally, the alumni will offer perspective, through sharing their own stories, about navigating what can often be a challenging, but exciting time of transition post-college.

The program will also address issues of identity, related to work and life and the anxiety that many students feel upon transitioning out of college into the real world. A brief discussion will underscore how our identity, first and foremost lies with Christ - we're not defined by our jobs or work, but instead can be used in those environments to be the hands and feet of Christ to the world.
