Cool Connections, Hot Alumni series received accolades

This innovative monthly speaker series was recently awarded a bronze ranking in the 2012 Case Accolades District II Best Practices in Alumni Relations category by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and uses the power of technology to expose students to successful alumni in a variety of fields. Via videoconference, alumni speak to students about their current jobs, career path and experiences while students at Binghamton, and how students should prepare for entry into the job market. This fall, students were able to connect with David Wong ‘95, director of engineering at Fisher Price; D. Chris Honsberger ‘91, director of Global Procurement for Starbucks; and Albert ‘Skip” Rizzo, PhD ‘91, associate director for Medical Virtual Reality for the USC Institute for Creative Technologies and research professor for USC Davis School of Gerontology and USC Keck School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
