Gaels Connect Networking

For Students and Alumni

Gaels Connect Networking is a mentoring program open to all students and alumni. This dynamic initiative is focused on bringing the Iona University community together in meaningful interactions, resulting in an enriched student body and strengthened alumni network.

Current Students

Student opportunities are centered around tactical one-time interactions that provide insights, shared knowledge and advice through short-term engagement with alumni.

  • Students will network with mentors through Gaels Connect. You can interact with multiple mentors, so you’ll have the opportunity to learn from a variety of individuals with expertise in varying subjects.
  • While building a professional network, students can get timely advice on the subjects or skills they need to know such as determining a career path or guidance with a resume or upcoming interview.
  • Students from all class years can participate, both undergrad and graduate programs.


You don't need to be a current student to take advantage of Gaels Connect Networking, all alumni are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity as well. Alumni are welcomed to seek out mentors, connect with Gaels throughout the globe and explore the wide range of industries Iona graduates operate in.
