Our graduates get up to some pretty amazing things — both professionally and personally — while pursuing their passions. While many of our alumni assume prominent roles in companies and organizations such as Amazon, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, NASA, Twitter, to name a few, a handful of intrepid individuals strike out on their own to head start-ups. Whatever path they take, our alumni shine bright, inspiring us all to reach above and beyond.
