These Broncos found what they were looking for!
Thanks to Switchboard, a Bronco alumna ('91, MBA '99) saw my ask about knowing someone who can sew and connected me with her SCU roommate's daughter who's a stellar seamstress. I'm delighted to have 6 new, more fashionable purses to complement my current style, and 10 more in the works. Gotta love the network effect in action!
I did not know what Switchboard was until a few weeks ago, thanks to reaching out to Denise Ho Assistant Director of Young Alumni. So I downloaded it and connected with Louie's Club. The chats with them were straight forward and without some of that tension from just cold applying. It just so happened my love for animals and content were a good fit for what they were looking for. I'm looking forward to working with them and help unite more dog lovers!
I moved from Florida to California to attend law school at Santa Clara University. A few weeks before I was supposed to move to California, I received a phone call that I had been waitlisted for campus housing. I was franticly searching for housing. Without affordable housing, I would not be able to come to California and fulfill my dream of becoming a lawyer! Switchboard connected me with several affordable housing options. I was able to sublease from a young lady studying abroad and she gave me a tour of the apartment and everything through FaceTime. I would not have been able to connect with her if it wasn't for Switchboard. Thank you Switchboard!
There continues to be a steady and growing Switchboard interest from SCU students, parents and alumni. As SCU's Switchboard grows, so, too, does the collective response to its multiple and varied posts (including my own!). Switchboard is a great idea and an outstanding networking tool for our ever-growing SCU community!
