Hornet Huddles

Hornet Huddles - a 20-minute conversation could change your life.

Hornet Huddles are 1:1 (or small group) meetings between Kalamazoo College alumni and students via Zoom.

This December, 60+ alumni have signed up to meet with students during Winter Break. We tell students:

A 20-minute meeting with a K alum in your field of interest could change your life. Or… if it doesn’t “change your life”, it can at least give you some solid direction/advice!

Hornet Huddles are now open in Handshake. You can sign up for as many as you’d like. See the full list of participating alumni in Handshake, and/or view a sortable spreadsheet here: https://bit.ly/HHAlumniDec21

Each of these alumni have multiple appointments available, and students may sign up for as many as they wish. All students can sign up, regardless of major or class year. 

To sign up, students should log in to Handshake, click on Career Center, Schedule an Appointment, and then find the alum they are looking for. Availability will range from Monday December 6 through Wednesday December 8, and all meetings will occur on EST, via Zoom.

See what previous Hornet Huddle student participants have to say about Hornet Huddles:

“I enjoyed being able to talk one-on-one with these alumni and make these connections, as well as talking with people who are passionate about what they’re doing and can give honest answers.”
“It gave me an opportunity to talk to people in the workforce and get a gauge for what’s out there.”
“Alumni really cared and made themselves available, didn’t want to just talk about themselves with no context of who they were talking to.”
“I gained invaluable insight about where I can go with my major!”
