Serving Up Career Education

Serving Up Career Education

The newly hired staff of Wellesley’s reenvisioned Career Education program introduced themselves to the College community at an ice-cream social in September. Among those present were the new college career mentors, who are matched with students in their first year and advise them for all four years at Wellesley; the directors of internships and fellowships; and the career community advisors, who each have an area of expertise, from the arts to international affairs to public health.

Also, in October, Wellesley announced that HGA, an integrated architecture, engineering, and master-planning firm, will design a new location for career education (near Billings) under the leadership of award-winning architect Joan Soranno, HGA design principal, and Rebecca Carns Celis ’03, HGA project manager.
