Julie Handler Winick '07"The University of Hartford has given me countless opportunities to develop my communication, leadership, and professional skills. Volunteering at the University of Hartford is a great way to network with others, especially within your profession. I am inspired by current university students and I want to make their educational experiences as rich as possible by including alumni in as many roles as possible within university life. I think it is important for grads to volunteer their time because no one can provide more insight into the experiences than those who have gone through them themselves. I am proud of my school and the education I received here and am more than willing to give back to that community and stay connected."
