March is Connections Month!

Starting the first week in March, students and alumni who register for this new Tommie network initiative will be introduced to a new connection each week. Pairs are free to chat about anything, but we’ll provide some topics along the way. You can join in on the fun anytime during March. New connections will be formed each Wednesday. Pairs can chat about career discernment, resume help, and so much more. Each connection you make will also enter you into fun drawings for UST swag throughout the month!

Put your St. Thomas education, experience and values to work for the common good! Most programs allow you to defer student loans, receive health insurance, and even earn money toward further education (or perhaps even a Master’s degree) while engaging in meaningful work with a community organization.
