Pitt Alumni network meet in Amsterdam

We’re happy to announce that on Saturday, Sept 10th, from 14:00 – 17:00 hrs the Benelux Pitt community will have a network meet for the Pitt alumni.

We’ve chosen a typical Dutch venue in the form of café het Paleis. It’s a cozy, cute, neighborhood cafe just behind the real palace of the Dutch King and Queen on the Dam in Amsterdam. It should be pretty easy to get to by public transport or walking from Central Station.

Large windows to let the light in, terrace outside to enjoy the sun, the sights and sounds of the city and breath in fresh air. All very typical Dutch, in my opinion.

Pitt will be sending out announcement and invite very soon. So keep an eye on your mailbox. Please RSVP to Jason Kane from Pitt, or use the contact form here, so we can keep track of the size of the crowd.

If you’d like to give a shout out on your socials about this Pitt Europe network meet, then we’d really appreciate that too!
