Event allows alumni and students to make virtual connections

Posted on Feb 3, 2015 in Career/Life and News

Last week, the KU Alumni Association hosted its first-ever online networking event for alumni and students. Using a platform provided by Brazen Careerist, members of the Alumni Association were able to log in to the event from anywhere in the world and connect with fellow Jayhawks.

“I really enjoyed the online networking event today and was able to connect with people from various backgrounds and areas of the world— all from my desk at lunch,” noted Ashley Backhus, j’07, a Life Member and owner of PlanMyTournament.com.

Current students who are members of the Student Alumni Association also participated in the event to help sharpen their networking skills and seek advice from alumni.

If you missed the first virtual event, don’t worry—we plan to offer additional opportunities to network online with Jayhawks!

Check out the infographic below to see some of the numbers from our first event.
