Psychology Student-Alumni Networking Dinner

Wednesday, April 10th


DeJope Hall, Mendota Room


The Psychology Student-Alumni Networking Dinner is a fantastic opportunity to explore careers options, get tips from people in a field of interest, and find out more from psychology alumni. Alumni come from a wide variety of career fields.

Students will meet in small groups with up to six alumni for roughly 30-40 minutes each. This allows students to hear information and tips/recommendations from multiple people and ask general or specific questions they may have. There will also be two break times in which students are able to speak with someone they are not assigned to meet with. Students will be matched to alumni as best as possible based on student interests.


A dinner will be provided, including beverages and dessert. A small $5 student attendee fee will be required.


*Registration will open at a later date.
