November 21: The Pamplin Pulse

Message of thanks from Dean Saonee Sarker

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to (and appreciation for) each of you. I am grateful for the extraordinary community that we have built together here at Pamplin, and I am excited about our future. I plan to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with my family and great food as well as enjoy some downtime and get recharged. I hope you do too and please stay safe.

Happy Thanksgiving

Engage with the PUMP Alumni Mentoring Program

The mission of the Pamplin Undergraduate Mentoring Program (PUMP) is to provide support to students with their transition into and through college by connecting them with resources to help them develop academically, personally, and professionally in the classroom and in their careers.

Programming at each level is tailored to students in their current academic year and stage of their career readiness. PUMP peer mentors are carefully selected and trained to offer advice and guidance while providing their own student perspective on the Pamplin experience.

Please follow the link below to learn more about PUMP and to complete a questionnaire so that we can best match you with one of our PUMP participants.
