Golden Bear Orientation Alumni-Student Mixer

Cal Alumni Mixer for New Transfer Students

Updated January 6, 2022: The Cal Alumni Mixer for New Transfer Students will now be hosted virtually.

The Cal Alumni Association (CAA) and New Student Services are pleased to announce the return of our alumni mixer for incoming transfer students during Golden Bear Orientation. Help us provide incoming transfer students (many of them first-gen students), with their first opportunity to network with alumni. Share your experience to help expose students to a variety of career paths.  

This event requires very little preparation. Alumni volunteers will be organized into networking groups based on their industry expertise. You will simply chat with interested students, share your path from Cal to your career, and offer advice to those who hope to follow in your footsteps.

Date and Time
Saturday, January 15, 2022
10 a.m – 11 a.m.
