Event Details

Tritons around the world are waking up to discover that their UC San Diego alumni network can be one of their best career tools. Ivy League schools and grads have been promoting and benefiting from their alumni networks for years. It's time for the Triton community to leverage the power of this valuable network.

Triton Connect, hosted by UCSD Alumni, is a series of customized networking events designed to meet the needs of alumni in our top regions. Each event consists of a thought-provoking keynote speaker, specially invited alumni “champions” representing diverse professions and industries, and plenty of time to socialize and mingle with fellow Tritons from your area. 
The evening’s networking reception includes light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.
