Adele's Happenings
Alumnae visit Adele’s Circle - Become Gems for University Women

UMD women gain career and life advice from sister Terps through Pearls of Power event 

Perks of a sister or a best girlfriend come in many forms: clothes, rides, homework, travel and above all, life advice. These connections, however, are not always easy to come by, and in college, guidance may seem as unreachable as scheduling an appointment with an advisor during syllabus week. Adele’s Circle understands this, and has organized an event to link University of Maryland women to Terrapin alumnae for the career and life advice they’ve been searching for.
