I’m Erica Young Reitz, and I love helping students and alumni thrive after college. For over a decade I—along with team of co-laborers—have been guiding college seniors through a program called Senior EXIT. We help seniors “pack their bags” with the tools and perspective they need to navigate the changes, challenges and choices ahead – because there are lots of them!
My passion led me to write, After College: Navigating Transitions, Relationship and Faith (InterVarsity Press). After College is a “one-stop resource” for seniors and recent alumni who want to know what to expect from the transition out of college and how to thrive in all areas of life beyond graduation.
I enjoy speaking with students and twenty-somethings as well as with practitioners who work with them (professors, pastors, college ministers and others).
Erica Young Reitz directs Senior EXIT, a one-year experience that prepares graduating college seniors for the transition into the next phase of life. She works for the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach), reaching out to students at Penn State University. Erica has a M.A. in higher education from Geneva College, with a graduate research focus on the senior year transition. She and her husband, Craig, live in State College, PA, with their two children.
