Spectacular Turnout For Inaugural Student and Alumni Mixer

This is a picture of an SON alum talking with two SON students.

On November 14th, the School of Nursing’s Undergraduate Council joined forces with the Alumni Association to host the inaugural Student and Alumni Mixer.  As part of the Council’s “Get Hired” series, the mixer gave SON students an opportunity to practice their networking skills and alumni a chance to share their wisdom with future colleagues. Over 45 students and 20 alumni attended the “Following in Your Footsteps” event. The alumni in the room represented classes ranging from 1974 to 2013 and held degrees ranging from BSN to PhD. Throughout the night, stories were shared and connections were formed. Students left with business cards from potential mentors and a bit more knowledge about the career path that lies ahead of them.

If alumni are interested in mentoring current SON students, please contact Katisha Paige, Associate Director of Advancement and Alumni Affairs at Katisha_Paige@unc.edu or call 919-966-4619 to be added to the mentor list.
