As I prepared to attend the seventh annual SLU Connect “trip” on Monday, January 25, I realized that getting ready for a networking event looks quite different today. For me, it meant planning my outfit from the waist up, tidying up the background of my Zoom screen, and most importantly, quieting the five boys that live with me in my townhouse. This SLU Connect “trip” would happen from my room on campus.
While snow fell in Canton, new and familiar faces smiled on my computer; a night full of conversation and networking with alumni from San Francisco to Boston commenced. Though we couldn’t be in the same room or even the same city, the power of St. Lawrence connections was still on full display via Zoom.
