There’s a special bond among St. Bonaventure alumni, a loyalty to the institution and its graduates that only grows stronger through time. What better venue is there for career-minded SBU students than a room full of devoted alumni who have achieved professional success and want to help other Bonnies get there.
That’s why, for the third year, the Career and Professional Readiness Center (CPRC) has organized Bonnies4Bonnies, a career networking event aimed at connecting students and alumni. Students of all majors are encouraged to attend Bonnies4Bonnies, planned for 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9, in Doyle Dining and Board of Trustees Rooms.
Registration for the networking event is now open at www.sbu.edu/Bonnies4Bonnies. The deadline to register is Wednesday, Feb. 7.
Following a keynote talk on the powerful St. Bonaventure alumni connection, students
will have the chance to meet and mingle with alumni representing a broad spectrum of professional roles, from entrepreneur to corporate executive. Alumni participating in Bonnies4Bonnies represent many major urban cities, including Washington, D.C., Charlotte, N.C., Buffalo, Houston, and New York City. The CPRC will host more than three dozen companies and organizations spanning a wide range of sectors, including technology, finance, education, the automotive industry and the government.
Addressing students and alumni at this year's event will be Shannon Rozner, president of Financial-360, a financial planning team based in Rockville, Md. She oversees all aspects of the business, whose seven-
member team serves nearly 300 clients and advises on more than $220 million in assets.
Rozner joined Financial-360 following an unconventional path. Upon graduating from St. Bonaventure with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology in 1994, she worked with at-risk youth and college students as a campus minister in a suburb of Detroit.
She subsequently received her law degree from The University of California, Berkeley. After graduation, she spent nine years at an international law firm, specializing in securities enforcement work. For the two years prior to joining F-360, she served as counsel for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), where she worked in the Department of Market Regulation.
Rozner is an active volunteer. She serves on the Alumni Board of the UC-Berkeley Law School Death Penalty Clinic and will soon join the Board of Directors for Friends of Guest House, a rehabilitation program for women coming out of prison in Virginia.
Rozner enjoys spending time with her husband, Steve, and their tween son, Ben; hanging out with friends; traveling; swimming and reading.
