Another Success for Alumni After Hours Series
On Wednesday, February 20, the offices of Alumni Relations from Medaille, the University at Buffalo, Buffalo State, SUNY Oswego, the College at Brockport and Niagara University hosted their fifth Alumni After Hours event at the Genesee Brew House in downtown Rochester.
With more than 90 alumni in attendance, the venue – situated on the grounds of the historic Genesee Brewery – was nearly filled to capacity for what is fast becoming Western New York’s most successful and sought-after networking opportunity for regional alumni. Combining a laid-back atmosphere with a serious purpose – connecting alumni with established peers in a variety of fields – these events are held twice a year and offer participants a unique way to grow their professional networks.
Medaille was represented on Wednesday by Mercedes Vazquez-Simmons ’10 ’12, a national sales manager with Time Warner Cable and a professional boxing promoter. Vazquez-Simmons joined other established alumni to share insight and advice on achieving professional goals and contributed to what participants called a “roaring success.”

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
