I thought it was excellent! But I had no idea that retiring from here was so complex!

I thought the seminar was very informative. Learned a lot and feel more comfortable in knowing what I have to do to retire. I think everyone who is thinking of retiring should take this seminar. Very well presented. The facilitator knew our answers to our questions. She was very professional. Thanks again

Really wish there were more than 8 employers that went. Only 2 were viable for full time positions in the summer.

Better than past 2 semesters, more students. Still difficult to get students to engage. Many will not make eye contact, I think they show up just to get the points/passport/etc. Do we need to invest in swag?

An interesting reminder to be aware of other peoples' circumstances, but I feel the length of the training can drastically be reduced. Nicole LaDue summed it up perfectly with "Don't be a jerk."
