Networking Events

Alumni Affairs brings you networking events year-round, from workshop series to seasonal mixers.

Alumni Showcase is our bi-annual event showcasing a panel of alumni who discuss topics like CPT/OPT, entrepreneurship, scholarships, and much more! Learn about the achievements of your fellow graduates and share your own with our students.

Grad Night is our annual event celebrating the astounding achievements of our Westcliff graduates! Our alumni have the ability to network with one another, rekindle friendships, and create lasting memories. 


Alumni Mentorship Program is our program that matches current students with alumni based on a matching process, dependent on a variety of factors from programs of study to native languages. The communication is easy and flexible; we designed the program to fit into busy schedules. Meet others looking to network and provide valuable insight for current students!
