Thank you all so much for coming out on Thursday, March 4th, 2015 for a great A-School alumni event at Reed Hilderbrand and we hope that you all got home just fine in the snow (we know…you are all old pros at this by now!) We had a wonderful visit to Boston – always nice to see so many familiar faces.
Many asked about how you can help with some of the initiatives that Beth mentioned –
- Alumni-Student mentoring – Sign up at https://alumnimentoring.virginia.edu/ The pilot program with 30 students from the A-School (and 100 from the College) is already underway, but alumni can continue to register and increase the pool of possibly mentees for the students…and hopefully this program will continue to grow! If you are interested in reaching out to students, sitting on panels, giving advice both in Boston or Charlottesville -feel free to contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Admissions –reach out to high school students and prospective graduate students to promote the A-School and your experience. There is a some information on admissions on our website http://www.arch.virginia.edu/admissions and any questions about undergraduate or graduate admissions can be directed to Kristine Nelson, Director of graduate admissions and financial aid, at (434) 924–6442. If you are interested in calling admitted students and chatting with them about your experience in end of March, contact Kim.
- Job Postings and Internship opportunities – send them to email@example.com and we’ll get them posted on our website and on the University Career Services website.
Beth talked about all the exciting things happening at the School (2015 Vortex) and the many ways we are working on turning around what was a difficult Fall semester into positive change and creative solutions. We look forward to including you in that continuing conversation.
Finally, many thanks to everyone at Reed Hilderbrand for hosting and sponsoring the event! We wish you a record-breaking snowfall year but then a speedy Springtime.
