Are you looking for ways to reconnect with your alma mater? Young alumni are encouraged to engage with PhilaU!
You can offer professional advice to current students by becoming a mentor. For more information, please visit http://www.philau.edu/alumni/getinvolved/mentoringprogram.html.
“I would say that the mentoring program has been such a wonderful and positive experience. It has opened doors for me with knowledge from outside PhilaU from resume review to shadowing my mentor at his work. The mentors have the best intentions in mind and are truly there for their students. It is also a great way to put yourself out there for job opportunities!” – Emily Cousineau ’14 Business Management
“I like the mentoring program because as a freshman, I am already networking and learning about the trade I want to be in. It has helped me out so much in finding a job.” – Kelly Nugent ’17 Fashion Merchandising and Management
