How To Maintain Relationships with Alums

This is a past event.

Join this session to learn about why creating your network is important and learn tips on how you can be successful at maintaining your relationships. We will explore the tools available to you, such as our new networking platform called "The Gates," and how you can leverage the system features to be an effective networker.

The Gates is an online tool — exclusive to the Mount Holyoke community — that simplifies the way alums, students, faculty and staff can connect and support each other in personal and professional growth. Through "The Gates" students can:

  • Connect around shared interests
  • Receive career advice
  • Join career and affinity groups
