The True Life: Alumni Experiences in Service Panel & Live Stream was another event held to support Elon University’s year-long focus on post-graduate service opportunities.  Five alumni with backgrounds in service participated in a panel to connect with students interested in a year of service. Some panelists appeared in person and others joined the panel remotely via Google Hangouts on Air.
