This image is mainly a brown background with light brown squares in a grid pattern that fill the background. On the left are very large letters W M U in gold, stacked in a verticle arrangement. Next to them are: a graduation cap, a caption bubble, and a light bulb.  To the right is large white text that reads Preparing for post-graduation opportunitites.  And below that in smaller gold text is: resume / cv , networking, plan it forward, interviewing, and alumni panel.  This image is intended to draw attention to the Preparing for Post-Graduate Opportunities workshop listed near it on this page.
