Laker to Laker

Tuesday, March 29, 2022
11:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Held virtually via Zoom

Laker to Laker is an opportunity for students to sit down with an alumni mentor for an informal, half-hour conversation.

Conversations are guided by student interest. Alumni will share their experience choosing a major, their involvement on campus, and their career path. Exploratory students, and students who are considering a change, can talk with alumni from one or more areas they may be considering. Students who have declared a major can talk with alumni from that program to learn more about their experience and career opportunities.

The alumni mentors participating and the student registration form is listed below. You may select the alumni you would like to speak with, or choose to be randomly assigned. After completing the form you will receive an email with the Zoom link.
