It was great, I would definitely attend another event like it.

This was a very informative lunch and learn. I didn't realize there were so many easy and not time-consuming ways to make events sustainable. Thank you!

This conference call with the Colgate alumni NBC universal staff was extremely helpful and informative. I learned a great deal about how to specifically approach my applications and made connections with the alumni at the information section.

Outstanding talk and discussion. I came away with some great ideas of how to talk to and work with my parents as they age.
