Make the Most of the Event

Both graduate and undergraduate students will attend this event

  • We will pair graduate students with alumni of the same program when possible 

Everyone should definitely:

  • Come dressed in "smart casual"
  • Be prepared with a 30-60 second introduction of yourself (an elevator pitch)
  • Have a short list of prepared questions you can ask the alumni

If you want to prep a bit more:

Arriving at LinkUp

Check in in the lobby of Campion Ballroom

  • Receive your nametag
  • Your list of alumni pairs for the event 

Find a seat in Campion Ballroom by 4:10 p.m.

  • There will be a short talk on networking and using social media to connect

Enjoy snacks and a gourmet hot chocolate bar

Please plan to join us in 2020 if you are not able to arrive before 5:15 p.m. Thank you for understanding. 

Conversation Starters

To help begin your networking rounds, consider the following prompts:

  • Briefly share your personal and professional history
  • Share highlights of your SU and college experience 
  • Ask about the alumni's experience while at SU. What organizations/clubs were they a part of?
  • Ask about the alumni's professional life. How did they get to where they are today?
  • Share tentative plans for your first job or expected first position following graduation
  • Talk about your favorite SU tradition or location on campus

 The goal is to quickly go into conversations around professional pathways and journeys. Try and stay away from surface level conversation topics such as the weather, sports, or how the day has gone.
