Finding opportunities for students to engage with alumni is one of the main goals of the Washington University Alumni Association. Last June, the Alumni Association joined forces with the Career Center to host networking parties around the country. Students were able to network with young alumni (ages 35 and under) and gain insight into various fields. Summer parties took place in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.

Alumni like Julia Mellon, AB ’11, and Gabriel Abramowitz, BSBA ’12, mingle with fellow alumni and currents students in New York. (Jennifer Weisbord, BFA ’92)
Networking events, like the one held in New York in June, help alumni living outside St. Louis — like Jeffrey Lancaster, AB ’05, BFA ’05, and Amy Schnitzer, AB ’98 — remain active members of the Washington University community. (Jennifer Weisbord, BFA ’92)
Sam King, AB ’12, and Matthew Rosenthal, AB ’11, were among the dozens of alumni who gathered to network with fellow alumni and students in New York. (Jennifer Weisbord, BFA ’92)
