CIA's visit to Chicago

Earlier in March, we had a wonderful time connecting with alumni in the Chicago area. We joined current CIA students who were on the Career Center spring break trip, and enjoyed an evening of conversation, connection and pizza. 
We look forward to resuming regional visits to our alumni in the future and hope that you are staying safe and healthy right now.
