UGA Virtual Networking Hour

UGA recently launched a series of free, virtual networking events for alumni and students. Participants are randomly paired together during a series of quick 10-minute chats on desktop or mobile device. The first one, Meet a Bulldog, was a great success. The next virtual networking event, Advice from the Big Dawgs, will pair alumni with students. This event will take place on September 30 from noon to 1:00 p.m. Alumni will be able to interact with and provide valuable advice and networking tips to current UGA students.
