The “Cool Connections, Hot Alumni” student-alumni speaker series is a unique and innovative program that connects Binghamton University students with interesting and successful alumni either face-to-face on campus or via videoconferencing technology.

Launched in the spring 2011 semester, the program allows students to make “cool connections” with Binghamton University alumni from “hot” fields and with “hot” ideas.  These events provide an opportunity for alumni, regardless of where they live and work, to speak with students about their Binghamton experience and the transition to their present career as well as respond to student questions and provide advice. This program is a partnership between the Binghamton University Alumni Association and The Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development. 

Space is limited, and registration is required. See our list of future and past Cool Connections, Hot Alumni events. Registration will open one to two weeks in advance through hireBING.

"Cool Connections, Hot Alumni is a fantastic opportunity to make a life-long connection through the informal and unique setting making these events heavily sought after by students. Relevant, engaging and informative. " - Kevin Zhang '19
