Eager to make a difference? The Alumni Asociation invites you to attend the Alumni Career Mentor Program’s Fall Kickoff. This kickoff marks the launch of “Three Chats Over Coffee,” an exciting new model for enhancing the longtime Alumni Career Mentor Program. At the event, you’ll get to know students of all class years over delicious burritos, network with fellow alumni interested in sharing professional expertise with the Arcadia community, learn best practices for being a great mentor, and be among the first alumni to learn about the new features of the program. After the evening's programming, you will be paired with a student mentee. You won’t want to miss it!
Discover the benefits of having a professional mentor, learn more about the Alumni Career Mentor Program, and gain tips for how to be a great mentee over dinner catered by Qdoba. Meet alumni of a variety of generations interested in giving back to Arcadia and sharing their expertise in a stress-free speed networking night. After attending this fun evening, you will be paired with an Alumni Career Mentor who shares common interests with you. Please feel free to dress casually for the event; business casual is not required. Students should sign up for the event via Handshake.
