Jamil Jude '09 speaks to students attending the SophoMORE Connections networking workshops event

Jamil Jude ’09 delivers SophoMORE Connections keynote

Freelance director, producer, and playwright Jamil Jude ’09 gave sophomores a taste of life after Colgate as the SophoMORE Connections keynote speaker on January 20. Jude likened the search for a career to a role in improv theater: “One of the rules of improv is to say ‘yes and.’ The improv dies when you say ‘no,’” he said. “Say yes to every single opportunity that you get.”
