As part of the board’s student-facing mission, practitioners are invited to have dinner with a cohort of students studying real estate to act as a catalyst for conversation and a chance to offer face-to-face mentorship. Members spend 20 to 30 minutes giving students an overview of their career trajectory, discussing a project or projects that you are working on and perhaps speak about how their time at the University prepared them for the work that they are doing. The remainder of the time will be for questions from students.
Please contact your club leadership for further details.
