    What will Night 2 Network be like?

    The format for both Night 2 Network events is as follows: 6:40 PM: Doors open Sign-in at the registration table and pick-up your name tag and an alumni bio packet 6:45 PM: Alumni arrive 7:00 PM: Alumni Panel begins Alumni are seated at the front of the room at the panel table and they will introduce themselves. An SAO member will be moderating and will ask the first few questions to the alumni. Then students may ask questions to the alumni. We suggest that you prepare 1 question to ask the alumni. 7:20 PM: Alumni Panel ends; Seaver College Career Center gives a "Networking Tips" presentation 7:30 PM: Student-Alumni Networking begins! Alumni will move to different areas of the room and students will be put into groups. Each student group will go to their designated alumnus and have a chance to chat with them for up to 10 minutes. At the 10 minute mark each group will move the the next alumnus. Then after each group has had a chance to talk to each alumnus they may then go back to chatting with any alumnus that they choose. This allows time for more specific questions and real networking experiences. Think of it as speed dating, but it is speed networking! Prepare for the Night 2 Network by visiting the Seaver College Career Center! Check out the SAO Facebook Page to learn about the alumni guests! If you have any questions about the event, please contact: David Nguyen Vice President of Alumni Connections Student Alumni Organization: We look forward to seeing you!
