Ask Alumni | Virtual Events

An opportunity to meet OSU alumni who have been where you currently are, ask questions and learn from their experiences.

Connect with Oregon State alumni who have been in your place and lay the groundwork for your success in the classroom and beyond with school and career guidance directly from the source. Learn how recent alumni have found success in their college and in their early professional years, from classes to career and advising to internships.

At each of the Ask Alumni virtual events, hear from and network with dynamic alumni who have graduated recently. Each event features an interactive panel, where you’ll learn about the early career paths of others who have experiences similar to yours, and you’ll find support for your day-to-day college life and as you transition from education to industry. Plus, you’ll grow your professional network with students and alumni alike and get insights on job and mentorship opportunities.
