The future can be uncertain, but what you know for sure is that you are well on your way to crossing the stage at graduation and holding that degree in your hand, you just have one semester left to complete! Don’t worry, you’re in the home stretch! To make your last few months’ worth while, The Brock University Alumni Association is hosting an amazing event for all graduates to reminisce, mingle with their graduating class, establish some connections and help prepare graduates for the future that awaits them.

Here are the top five reasons you should go to your grad send off.

  1. Career Aspirations

Some of you may be thinking that you are going to finish your degree but then what? This event will help you find your way. At the Grad Send-Off there will be a career fair where you can connect with fellow alumni and network with people in your field! You will also get an opportunity to have your LinkedIn profile pictures taken as well as your resume and cover letter reviewed. So dress to impress and feel free to bring along your updated resume and business cards.

  1. Life Hack: Saving Money

Behind all that glitz and glam of becoming a Brock Grad, you have to think about how you are going to pay off that student debt you have been accumulating. I know, we don’t want to think about it either, but Brock Alumni is here to help you! There will be stations set up where students can learn tips and tricks on how to save money after school! Don’t worry guys, we are all in this together.

  1. Free Food and Prizes.

Do I really need to go in depth with this one? Not only is the food delicious, the first 150 people who come to the Grad Send-Off get free selfie sticks! There will be tons of other freebies given away throughout the event, so don’t worry if you don’t end up with a new selfie stick.

  1. Brock Perks

Trust me, you didn’t put all that blood, sweat, and tears into working for your degree for nothing! As Brock Alumni, you get tons of perks. You will always have access to on campus departments like Career Services, discounts at various locations both on and off campus, premium home and car insurance prices. There are so many perks and you can learn about them at the Grad Send-Off. Also, 20 per cent off grad frames only at the Grad Send-Off!

  1. This One is For the Books

Let’s be honest, how many of these people are you really going to see after graduation? Why not take the time now to say your goodbye’s and share one last moment with those who made you into the person you are today. Brock Graduate Asmir Basic, who attended last year’s Send-Off, said that “It was nice to see everyone together and it was cool to see all the options I had for my future.”
