When Students Meet Alumni

alumni_connections.jpgSome say who you know is as important as what you know. If that's true, what do you do when you don't know someone? My colleagues in the Alumni Relations Office are working with the staff of the Career Development Center and IUP's academic areas to make sure our students make connections in the working world.

Next week, students from Eberly College of Business and the Computer Science Department will travel to Pittsburgh to attend a reception the Alumni Relations staff has planned with employees of PNC Bank. The idea is to give students the chance to make contacts with alumni within the company; those contacts could in turn lead to internships, cooperative experiences, inside knowledge, and, maybe a job after graduation. Mary Jo Lyttle, director of Alumni Relations, asked me to acknowledge the alumni from PNC who have volunteered to serve as the event's host committee: Davie Huddleston '69, David Williams '79, Brady Wise '95, Joanna Ender DiCiurcio '02, Gary Greenwood '06, Jennifer Butter '07, and Benjamin Pollock '09.

Alumni Relations and others in University Relations are working on a similar event in New York City in December for students studying business, Fashion Merchandising, and Hospitality Management. More on that later.
