Dinner With 12 Panthers

Dinner With 12 Panthers

Dinner with 12 Panthers is an annual tradition at Pitt. Alumni host small dinner gatherings for 12 Student Alumni Association members at a location chosen by the alumnus. These intimate gatherings have become great networking opportunities for alumni and students, who enjoy sharing their stories, experiences, and future plans.

This year, SAA members will get to select their host alumnus based on shared academic or professional interests described in the profiles below. All dinners will be held on or near campus, and meals will be paid for by the host alumnus.
