Dinner with Six Strangers Program Brings Alumni Back to AUA

YEREVAN- The Dinner with Six Strangers alumni mentoring program, initiated by the American University of Armenia (AUA)’s Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development Office, continues to reconnect alumni with their alma mater. On January 24, 2014, alumna Gohar Khachatryan (PSIA ’05) hosted a dinner event with a group of graduate and undergraduate students from different academic departments and years of study.

During these events, alumni are able to share their professional experience and to act as mentors for current AUA students. Khachatryan said, “Sharing my experience at AUA and learning all about the students aspirations and challenges was extremely gratifying and inspiring. I believe the program offers a wonderful opportunity for students to network and socialize and at the same time to keep alumni engaged and connected with their alma mater.”

The Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development holds up to two Dinner with Six Strangers events each month. If you are interested in participating in the program, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development at alumnirelations@aua.am or 010 51 25 40.

The mission of the AUA Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development is to develop, coordinate and promote programs for our alumni to keep them connected and involved with the AUA and one another, and to create a culture of philanthropy by encouraging alumni to contribute their time, talent, and resources to the advancement of the University.

The career development function of the Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development is to contribute to career achievements of AUA graduates through enhancing their job finding skills. Additionally, to provide job placement services to students/alumni and develop strong and tangible links between employers and the university, to allow for the Office of Alumni Relations and Career Development to support and assist students and alumni in their professional development.
