Alumni Lunch and Learn Series

We are excited to launch a new program for the alumni community! 

In partnership with Student Affairs and Alumni Relations, we want to invite alumni back to campus to talk with current students about their experience in dental school and share exciting employment opportunities in the dental community. 

This program is unique and ONLY offered to to the alumni community as current students will benefit from the knowledge and expertise of alumni practicing in diverse settings.

I want to participate! Here is what we are asking alumni to talk about:

These sessions are broken up into 2 parts:

  1. Talk about yourself! What was dental school like for you? How did you decide to practice where you do? What lead you there? What would you do differently? What advice do you have for current students?
  2. What is it like to work at your practice? What things should you keep in mind when deciding if its a good fit? Are there any current openings? 

These sessions are offered over the lunch hour (12:05pm -12:50pm), day of the week depends on speaker and student schedules.

Alumni can provide lunch for students, but lunch is optional, and not required for participating alumni.

Sign up here:

We will do our best to accommodate each request, but we want to provide students with diverse opportunities throughout the year.
