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. 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!

Students – to sign up for the upcoming Spring 2023 Hornet Huddles (held on Wednesday, April 19), please visit Handshake. Click on Career Center, Appointments, Schedule New Appointment, Hornet Huddle Appointments w/Alumni 4/19/23, and then choose an alum of interest. All available timeslots will show up. If you are interested in an alum that is participating this term and no longer has appointment types available, please contact rwood@kzoo.edu for waitlist/cancelations.

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!”
