LinkUp: An Alumni & Student Mentoring Event

LinkUp is a structured, low-key, networking event that connects current A&S undergraduate and graduate students with A&S alumni.

Meet alumni, discover shared interests, discuss professional plans and ideas, and start a mentoring relationship.

Not all mentoring opportunities have to be time consuming or highly structured. We believe that our students can get a wealth of information in quick bursts. Some of the most impactful conversations could be had during a 10-15 minutes session.

LinkUp is a micro-mentoring event, there will be 3 short rounds of connections (15 minutes) where students get to practice speaking with people in a wide range of industries. Our goal is to have our students connect with at least 3 mentors during the event. 

After the event, students will receive an email recommending at least 2 mentors who align with their interests for further connection.

We welcome students of all class years and encourage you to come every year.
