During the weekend of June 8-9, 2018, the Office of Alumni Engagement is hosting a program for our alumni who are entering into their “third act” of life and seeking to define their calling and set goals for what comes next. For those alumni participating in this weekend of learning and growth, they will have the opportunity to hear from keynote speaker Gregg Levoy, author of Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life and Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life. His presentation—part lecture and part hands-on seminar—takes a creative approach to not just getting older but growing older. It’s about what inspires passion in your life and what defeats it, how you lose it and how you get it back, as well as keep it flourishing for the duration.
