The Recruiting Office would like your participation in expanding awareness about the Monterey Institute and reaching out to prospective students in other parts of the country and throughout the world by hosting a Coffee Chat.
Who can help? Continuing students and new graduates who plan to travel or return home during the winter break. The Coffee Chats may take place from January 6 until the beginning of the spring term.
How can you help? We are looking for students who would like to meet and host a small group of prospective students (usually 3-8) at a coffee shop or similar establishment and share their experiences about what it is like to be a student here at the Monterey Institute. We are calling these meetings “Coffee Chats.” Arrangements will be made by and expenses covered by the Recruiting Department.
Why is this important? Prospective students exploring graduate schools want to heave directly from current students; who better to help them understand the Monterey Institute experience than you!? This is any informal and meaningful way to increase the visibility of the Monterey Institute, show your school pride and encourage another person to make the same decision you did!
Have these been successful in the past? Those who have hosted the chats have report that they had a great time and the prospective students had good questions. The hosts have felt that the chat was worthwhile and they would like to host again.
Please indicate your interest in learning more by emailing Alice.firstname.lastname@example.org. Alice will send you specific details and answer any questions you have.
