Recent Grads

Welcome!
Young alumni & recent graduates make up more than half of our entire UC Santa Cruz alumni population (a total of over 120,000 alumni). The Banana Slug Network does not end after graduation, it is a life long community. The Banana Slug Network is a combination of resources, events, and relevant opportunities that support and engage young alumni. Your alma mater is here for you! We are excited to continue developing this network, and hope that you find the information on this page helpful and relevant, and will visit again. Stay connected, find out more regarding the perks of being a Banana Slug Alum, and be a volunteer to help shape our growing alumni program.

Summer 2019 events in California

Join us for networking and career support this summer! Do you need a career boost or want to meet up with other Slugs in your area? UC Santa Cruz Alumni are here to support you. Networking is a key component to professional and personal success. You never know where you’ll meet someone who will connect you with your next opportunity. Attend one or both of the two segments offered at each event.

1. First Hour--A career and professional support session with career advice, resume review, head shots and networking tools.

2. “Happy Hour”--A networking social with hors d'oeuvres, beverages and socializing with alumni of all ages in your area. Reconnect with old friends and build connections with other Banana Slugs in your region.
