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 they enjoy or like the most about college? What were they like as young adults? What do they do in their spare time? Students will also ask questions. There will be approximately 40 students in attendance. (NOTE: Breakthrough Miami students are called “Scholars”.)
