Lauralton's Career Day, a very popular event held every other year, brings a group of professional women to campus. The event gives students an opportunity to interact with a range of professionals, many of whom are LH alumnae, relatives of students, or other friends of the wider Lauralton community. Visiting professionals represent a variety of fields including fine arts, business, communications, engineering, fashion, health, science, law, criminal justice and music education. The experience is eye-opening for many students as they hear about a “day in the life” of a profession they may not have considered. In addition, Career Day helps students learn the art of networking, which has led to mentoring relationships as well as opportunities to shadow and secure internships.
