It’s been nine months since you last received Connections, and it’s been busy at KCD. School is back in session, and we are off to a great start! The campus is constantly buzzing with activity in the hallways and on the athletic fields. The cast has been selected for the fall play, so even the stage is warming up. I often walk around campus and think about how fortunate our students are to be able to be a part of so many activities. Our students leave KCD as well-rounded young people who have been exposed to many opportunities and experiences that allow them to graduate as strong citizens, scholars, and stewards.
Over these last nine months, the Alumni Office has been busy setting up and launching KCD Connect, our new networking and mentorship platform. KCD Connect is a resource that allows our alumni to develop relationships with members of the KCD community who are willing to offer advice about their careers, their colleges and universities, or even simply about the cities in which they live. It’s about making connections and allowing our community to take advantage of the resources and opportunities that exist right here in the KCD family.
The best networking platforms are those whose membership includes not only older and younger members, but also a good balance of men and women and a wide variety of professions and specialties. Regardless of what your current profession is today, your experience and the story of your career path could be invaluable for those who have questions or are just starting out. Whether you are a KCD graduate, a parent, or a friend of the school, we hope that you will join KCD Connect and share your experience.

In addition to serving as a great resource for our alumni, KCD Connect also offers event registration. Moving forward, we will be handling registration for KCD events, including reunions, through KCD Connect. Check it out and sign up today!
