Designed to be structured, yet informal and low-key, LinkUp is an annual event that connects current CAS undergraduate and graduate students with alumni so that they can discover shared interests, discuss professional plans and ideas, and start a mentoring relationship. Since its inception in 2019, the event has proven to be an impactful and effective career building experience for the students.  
 
From past students
 
“The event made it easy and low pressure to network. The info session at the start and the online platform used were really helpful for networking. I learned a lot and it was great to hear about different careers.” 
 
“I enjoyed meeting and hearing from former graduates. They provided sound advice and the partnering with mentors was well curated.” 
 
From a past mentor
 
“This was a great event—I’m a little envious of these students! I thought the format was great, including the open networking time at the end—it made a good opportunity to direct students I met to other alumni I know.”
