Event Description: The program will consist of a panel of up to four Harvard alumni who will engage in conversations with the students to talk about college, career paths and experiences. Topics covered during the panel usually include: What do the panelists do for a living? Did college prepare them properly for their chosen careers? How did they choose their careers? What was their major in college and did it change? Is there anything they wished they had done differently to prepare for college? How did they choose their college? Is there anything they wished they had done in high school that they didn’t do? What was the hardest thing about college? What did you enjoy or like the most about college? Questions from the students.  The audience will consist of approximately 35 students, mostly 11th and 12th graders.
