More than 200 alumni representing the campuses of Los Angeles, Fullerton, Dominguez Hills, Long Beach, San Bernardino and Pomona, met for a night of food, fun and bonding, including approximately 50 alumni from CSULA.
“Recent graduates used the opportunity to catch up with friends and make new ones in a casual, friendly environment. Meanwhile, older graduates could expand their business and personal development network in a fun, new atmosphere. And the numerous Alumni Association staff from all campuses helped drive action at the event by guiding guests and making introductions that bond and unify CSU alumni.”
The CSULA Alumni Mentoring Program is a great way for alumni to share career experiences with current students through discussions on educational options, career choices, goal-setting and networking opportunities.
Approximately 450 alumni and students have signed up for the alumni mentoring program, according to James Cuaresma, coordinator of alumni and student outreach. In an effort to match alumni and students and recruit more, the Alumni Association held mentoring events this year, including a unique speed mentoring event in February.
Each student was given a set of questions to guide the three- to four-minute conversation with an alumnus. After the student met 10 possible mentors, Alumni Association staff made a quick assessment to determine good pairings.
Learn how to become a successful mentor, enhance your leadership skills, improve your career development and add a meaningful and rewarding experience by sharing your knowledge and experience with others.
