Wally Richardson '96
"Life After Football - What Happens When Life Changes"
October Nittany Networking Event
Friday, Oct. 18
We welcome Wally Richardson '96, former Penn State starting quarterback and current Penn State Football Letterman's Club Director to the Philadelphia area. Wally will give us a candid look inside the world of professional athletics, the shift his life took post football, and how he managed to navigate these changes towards a successful career. A fantastic story that will inspire you during life's transitions.
Most professional athletes face retirement before hitting the age of 30. They spend their whole lives preparing to play on a professional level for just a narrow window of time, but what happens once that window closes? How do you shift when life makes the decision to change before you do?
Wally Richardson ’96 will serve as our guest presenter. Penn State Football Letterman’s Club members are invited to this event as well.
Co-sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association’s Alumni Career Services, the Smeal Business Club of Philadelphia, and the Smeal Executive MBA program.
ACE Conference Center - located 10 minutes from the Plymouth Meeting exit on the Turnpike/Blue Route.

Penn State Smeal College of Business seeking volunteers
We are seeking your assistance with a new service we now offer to alumni and current students. SmealConnect - the new online career service - offers alumni - specific job postings from companies interested in hiring Smeal graduates. It also offers a career resource to current students.
On this site, alumni can register to give career advice to current students - here’s where we are seeking your assistance. The way it works is, students may search for alumni who have offered to give advice and who have similar backgrounds and experiences, and reach out to them for advice. Students typically have questions about career decisions and other business topics.
I encourage you to consider getting involved in SmealConnect - your involvement will help our students in their career planning. You may get started by accessing the complete SmealConnect registration instructions. For more information on SmealConnect, please contact Smeal’s Alumni Relations Office at 814-865-7831 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
