Dear alumni and friends

Welcome to your July edition of eSydney. With second semester fast approaching, we are still seeking alumni to support current University students through the AlumniOnline Mentoring Program.

The Program provides a unique opportunity to contribute to the career development of a student by sharing knowledge you have acquired through years of experience.

Visit the mentoring website and follow the three easy steps. If you have not activated your AlumniOnline account, you will need your Alumni ID, which is printed on your Alumni Card.

And a big thank you to the more than 600 alumni who have already signed up!

With kind regards
Tracey Beck | Director, Alumni and Events Office.
