Translation and Interpretation (T&I) Professor Miryoung Sohn and nearly ten MIIS alumni met in Korea earlier this month to host a Monterey Institute Information Session. The event, held on July 4th at a meeting room in the Coex complex in downtown Seoul, was attended by 45 prospective students and ten alumni. “This is the second event that we have held in Seoul this year. Our alumni have helped us to promote MIIS to over 100 individuals who might not have known about the programs offered in Monterey,” explained Enrollment Manager Rob Horgan. The Recruiting Department wants to sincerely thank Prof. Sohn and the MIIS alumni in Korea for taking the time on a Sunday afternoon to tell the MIIS story to prospective students.
Alumni Director Leah Gowron has explained that these kinds of alumni hosted information sessions are excellent examples of the call to service that so many MIIS alumni feel. “Our alumni give back in many ways. For some it is a financial contribution. For others, it is a willingness to give back with their time or expertise. These information sessions are a good example of the latter. Our graduates seem particularly willing to help the next generation of MIIS scholars with job opportunities, internships and career guidance at informational events.”
Thank you alumni in Korea! We really appreciate all of your help!
