Description

Welcome Alumni, Volunteers, Staff, Friends and Family!

Each year, HOLA hosts our annual Alumni Winter Reunion where we gather our alumni who are persisting in colleges and careers across the nation and we bring them together for time to reconnect with their peers and build their professional identities. This year our conference is titled “Your Life in One Page: Demystifying the Professional Resume.” During this one-day conference, we will target resume-building as it is a crucial part of professional success following college graduation.

Each alumni will have the opportunity to sit down with a volunteer in their desired field and get one-on-one resume building services. Our goal is to have our alumni leave the seminar holding a resume they are proud of! Throughout the day, students will choose from 5 workshops addressing post-graduation topics:


  • Reverse Engineering Your Career (Career Planning)

  • (Re)Framing Your Personal Narrative

  • Understanding Student Loans

  • Undocumented/DACA Student Caucus


We are so excited for our alumni to be joining us for this end-of-the-year celebration. Please check back for more details regarding location, parking, and preparation materials.
