Connect over coffee with both undergraduates and graduates

Posted 8.10.2016

Great news! This year, Coffee Connections will be offered to current Weatherhead graduate AND undergraduate students.

For eight years, Coffee Connections has matched alumni with our graduate students, and last spring the program was successfully piloted to current undergraduates. Both tracks provide alumni the opportunity to share their experiences and career insights with Weatherhead students over a cup of coffee or online. The program’s success has resulted in alumni feeling more involved with the school, and students gaining valuable industry knowledge and networking skills -- even job offers have resulted from connections through the program!

Time commitment:  A 30-45 minute meeting with a current student. In ideal cases, students and alumni will stay in touch throughout the semester and begin to build an ongoing relationship.
