Alumni Visits Portfolio Class
Stevenson graduate, Alysa Buchanan, visits VCD 410: Portfolio & Professional Development

Students in Portfolio and Professional Development had a familiar face visit their class to give advice on professional life after graduation. Alysa Buchanan, a 2014 VCD graduate, talked to the class about preparing for their careers and transitioning from students to professionals. She shared some of her own personal experiences, which included both struggles and successes, as she made her own shift into an entry-level position after graduation.

Alysa also sat down with students one-on-one to view their portfolio progress and provide feedback. Each student received tips for improvement to ensure their portfolios will stand out from others and be representative of their own personal style. Alysa is set to return to this class towards the end of the semester and is excited to see how the students have progressed and the portfolios have been transformed.
