Dinner with Six: Eat. Talk. Connect.

Dinner with Six

Presented by the NYU Alumni Association, the Dinner with Six program traditionally provides an opportunity for students and alumni to connect over a casual, relaxed meal.

Students are invited into alumni homes and nearby restaurants for dinner.  For students, it's an opportunity to enjoy a free meal, meet other students, and connect with alumni based upon a career field or interest. For alumni, it’s an opportunity to mentor students, share your experience, and make a difference to a future generation.

Dinner with Six – Fall 2020

As a result of the developments of the pandemic, the Dinner with Six program is being held virtually for the remainder of the year.

Launched virtually in Spring 2020, the virtual dinner with six program has proven to be just as impactful as our in-person program. Whether virtual or in-person, the goal of Dinner with Six remains the same – to connect students and alumni in hopes that they forge strong relationships rooted in guidance and support.

Whether you’re located in Abu Dhabi, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Washington, D.C, Madrid, or anywhere else in the world, the virtual Dinner with Six Program crosses all boarders to allow for student and alumni engagement.  

Since its inauguration in April 2015, 29 alumni have hosted 26 dinners in locations around Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as Shanghai, Abu Dhabi, Paris, London, and Buenos Aires; the program will soon expand to other global locations.

While a great experience for students, alumni hosts also find value in the dinners. As one host commented:

“I think it is extremely important to have alumni in strategic conversations with students; both sides have so much to gain.”
 

Dinners will be held virtually from November 2 – November 20, 2020

If you are interested in hosting a virtual dinner, please complete the interest form by September 28, 2020. “Dinners” will be hosted as meetings via zoom. If selected as a host, we will follow up with you.

 

The NYU Alumni Association hosts this event in the fall and winter in New York City and in the spring in our global locations. We hope that you will get involved!
