The CIEE Alumni Chicago Chapter had a fun and exciting gathering at Emilio's Tapas Sol y Nieve last week to plan upcoming chapter events. Chapter president Lauren Swanson reports, "With 9 attendees total, mostly newcomers, we were able to meet new faces and make the world a little smaller. Conversation flowed from our study abroad experiences into our international travels since graduation. It was a great opportunity to spread the word about our chapter's events and discuss cultural/professional events going forward in our community. Happy to kick off 2017 CIEE Alumni events in Chicago, and we look forward to the next event!"
