After the Cap & Gown Mentorship Meeting:
Mentor UAH Students in 1 HourAfter the Cap & Gown Mentorship Meeting
Hosted by: UAHuntsville Alumni Association and T.R.U.E. Chargers Student Alumni Association
Date: This Thursday, November 3rd
Time: 5:30-6:30 PM
Location: University Center Room 127, UAHuntsville
Featured College:  Nursing


*FREE Event - All Alumni are Invited.  No RSVP needed.*


Details:  Every alumnus has a wealth of experience and knowledge that you can share with current students.  But maybe you don't have the time that is usually required of a one-on-one mentoring relationship.  That's what great about "After the Cap & Gown."  They are condensed mentoring sessions.  Meet with current UAHuntsville students and share your advice and wisdom on job-hunting, career, and life after college. What happens after the cap and gown? After past sessions, the alumni rave about the benefit of these meetings just as much as the students.   
A different college will be featured at each session but there will be a wide variety of students and alumni from all colleges and majors and we've found that variety is a great benefit to the meetings as everyone brings something to the table.  So you do not have to be a graduate of the featured school to attend.


These meetings will be held on 11/3/11; 12/1/11; 2/2/12; 3/1/12; and 4/5/12 (same time, same place)- try to attend as many as you can to meet and mentor different students at each session.
