January is National Mentoring Month, and to celebrate, Pitt Commons is looking for a few good mentors!
As usual, Pitt (and the Alumni Association) seem to be ignoring anything beyond their national borders, but that’s okay. It’s normal and expected. 😉 We’re here – the Pitt alumni – and we know they don’t mean no harm… 🙂
Anyway… Perhaps you were looking for an opportunity to give something back to current Pitt students and are open for a few mentoring sessions with them. Given your unique experience creates a whole new mentoring-level that national Pitt alums are not aware off and I think could make international alumni even better mentors than native alum who’ve never experienced living aboard for a longer period of time. (This is all in good fun and no pun intended; no offense guys!)
If you’ve always wanted to share your knowledge and make an impact in a student’s life, the opportunity is here all month long on Pitt Commons. We’ll be matching students and alumni in Flash Mentoring pairs for a quick chat.
If you are ready to become part of a potentially transformative experience for a Pitt student, please follow these simple steps:
In a week there will be 11 confirmed Pitt alumni gathering in the Streetfood Club in Utrecht center for a get-together with some drinks and bites.
Come join us and catch up with Pittsburgh “affairs”, share your Pitt experience, get to know fellow Pitt Panthers in the country and enjoy the fabulous food and ambiance of the award-winning Streetfood Club.
Please RSVP using the comments and sign up for our mailing list, right here on the site. That way you’ll be alerted of future events and other news about the University of Pittsburgh in a European context.
We plan on holding these events once per quarter, i.e. every 3 months.
