Hearing from a Hog: Dewitt Smith OnOctober 19, 2015 · Leave a Comment

Hearing from a Hog is a Student Alumni Association exclusive program that allows students to meet with alumni in their desired career field. Recently, alumnus Dewitt Smith hosted a dinner for students interested in real estate.
The hearing from a hog event with Mr. Dewitt Smith was very good and enjoyable. I enjoyed talking to Mr. Smith about his career and how he got to where he is today. It was a very interesting story and a lot can be learned from people like him. I also appreciated the fact that in the ending of the dinner, he took time to give us, the students, some good life advice, no matter what your career or life plan is.
