Let us welcome you back next week to see what's changed and create new memories with us. Read more for everything you need to know about how to get involved. 

Plus, keep an eye on your email tonight because Visions of Christmas registrations open tomorrow.

Where are they now?

Cindy Cardenas '21

This young alumna is studying at EHL Hospitality Business School in Switzerland. During the first semester of her studies, Cindy Cadenas '21 worked with a team of students in a variety of service industry fields. So far, she's been a head waiter and supervisor in a Michelin star restaurant, Le Berceau des Sens and is now interning at the luxury hotel Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel Hong Kong in the Food and Beverage and Front Office departments.

Sophie Harrington '18

Sophie Harrington‘18 graduated from Cal Poly, SLO in June majoring in Construction Management. She also received a minor in Heavy Civil Engineering, the first woman to graduate with that new minor from Cal Poly. Accolades include team captain of the project management team where she competed with over 80 colleges nationwide. She just started a new job at Swinerton in San Francisco, where she interned each summer in college.

Both students say they are so thankful for the College and Career Center at Carondelet. For Cindy, they introduced her to a school of her dreams where she is getting experience she didn't realize she could get. Sophie is grateful for being pointed in the direction of a Construction Management degree—something that she didn’t know existed when she was applying for college.
