Nearly 2,000 students took part in Career Week, a roster of activities centered on choosing a career and setting a path to finding a job. Contributing to the panels of experts were 160 alumni taking part in discussions and sessions in nearly every field, from the established to the entrepreneurial. There were even workshops for students on the rules of etiquette, wine tasting, and what not to wear.
