BAM! Binghamton Alumni Mentoring
This event series brings Binghamton University alumni and current students together for a meal and conversation in a fun and relaxed environment. Students can expect to make new connections, strengthen their ties to the Binghamton University community, and learn about the different experiences of our graduates. Alumni have the unique opportunity to share their knowledge of the University, professional experiences and relationship to Binghamton University as a graduate.
How does it work?
One or two alumni volunteer to host between five and 15 students for coffee, lunch, brunch, cupcakes, you name it! This creates an opportunity for students and alumni to socialize, network, and understand the unique and wonderful relationships that alumni and students have with Binghamton University.
Events will take place throughout the calendar year in Binghamton, Metro New York, Long Island, Washington, D.C., Syracuse and Buffalo. The schedule of events will appear on this page and will be updated on a regular basis. Contact Courtney Huff, assistant director of student and young alumni engagement, with any questions.
September 30, 7 - 8:30 pm at Brewed Awakenings (20 Hawley Street, Binghamton)
