Formerly known as Cool Connections, Hot Alumni, this program, launched in 2011, helps students make "cool connections" with Binghamton University alumni from "hot" fields and with "hot" ideas. These events provide an opportunity for alumni, regardless of where they live and work, to speak with students about their Binghamton experience and the transition to their present career as well as respond to student questions and provide advice. This program is a partnership between the Binghamton University Alumni Association and the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development.
Space is limited, and registration is required. Registration will open one to two weeks in advance of each program through Handshake. Scroll through our Student-Alumni Events Calendar for information about upcoming events! If you have questions, contact Tenley Halaquist in the Alumni Engagement office.
"The program has been beneficial to me throughout my time here in Binghamton! Ever
since first semester of my freshman year, I've attended these meetings eagerly. The
very first event I attended provided me with a mentor with whom I still remain in
contact with today. If it weren't for the opportunities the University has provided
me with to connect with alumni, I would not have gained as much experience and knowledge
about the field of law. Binghamton University and this program have been instrumental
in my college success!"
