Meetup Information

Employer Meetups (including Information Sessions) are great ways to brand an organization and network with students. Meetups can be held at various times depending on the type of event. However, informations sessions are held in the evenings between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to avoid conflict with class schedules. Events can be coordinated at any time during the recruiting season (Fall: September - November and Spring: January - April).

TYPES OF MEETUPS MAY INCLUDE:

Bagel Days, Coffee Chats, Classroom Visits, Crack-the-Code, Etiquette Dinners, Faculty/Staff Meetings, Hackathons, Ice Cream Socials, Information Sessions, Lobby Days (based on approval by the desired college), Mock Interviews, Networking Nights, Resume Drives, and Workshop Facilitation to name a few.

We encourage employers to be creative and make the event as interactive and “out-of-the-box” as possible to enhance student participation. At present, there is no cost to host an Employer Meetup/Information Session on-campus excluding activities requested (by the employer) to be held in the Alumni-Foundation Events Center.

All Meetups MUST originate via the Office of Career Services and be submitted a minimum of 15 business days prior to the proposed event date.

FOOD / CATERING

Food is allowed in designated areas. If an employer wishes to serve refreshments, it must be requested during the initial Meetup request as this may affect the location of the event.
