Nearly 90 current students and UMBC alumni talked life after college at the annual “Sweeten Up Your Network” speed networking event on November 28. Sponsored by the Student Alumni Association, the event allowed alumni from a variety of backgrounds to share their real-world expertise with students looking to hone their networking skills.
“The SAA students and I are very happy with the outcome of Sweeten Up Your Network this year,” said Cindy Greenwood, alumni programming coordinator. “The event grew from about 50 attendees last year to nearly 90 this year and we have received great feedback about the conversations that students and alumni were able to have through this event. We look forward to continuing to grow and improve the event in future years.”
Formed in 2011, the Student Alumni Association is a student organization focused on connecting students with alumni and encouraging tradition and school spirit on campus. Read more about the group here.
