NetNite gives the opportunity for current Black students at the University of Maryland to network with alumni excelling in their prospective industries. Building a bridge that connects alumni and students, NetNite helps attendees to develop mentorships and support systems with those who have come before them. Although we face adverse conditions this year, we are optimistic for the success of our virtual event!
Please join us by RSVPing at https://netniteumd.splashthat.
The many conversations and opportunities that result from NetNite could benefit many students who probably have never heard of this event; therefore we encourage you to reach out to fellow students with this invitation. As current students, we hope that this event will give you guidance within your academic and future professional careers. We look forward to networking with you on October 27th!
