Share your experiences, make an impact
Do you remember how you felt as a student about life after Binghamton? Was it scary to think about being in the real world? Remember how encouraging it was to get advice from someone who made the journey you were going to make?
Whether you think of it as paying it forward or paying it back, you can be a mentor to current students, and we have a new program that makes it easy to fit this into your busy lifestyle.
During this academic year, we'll make the program available to students in several waves. Harpur Edge has piloted the program, and it is now open to students in the Watson School and the School of Management. As students complete required orientations, they may participate, and we'll continue to actively recruit alumni mentors.
Once you create your account on our software platform, you can add some information about yourself, and students who are interested in connecting to alumni in their career field and region will be able to find you. Communication between you and them takes place online, but could develop into conversations by e-mail, phone or in person.
