Welcome to the first ever Seven Sisters Blog Post! Never before has there been a place for Seven Sisters College current Students and Alumnae to connect and network!
While each Seven Sisters College has its own network, there has always been a need, in my mind, for all of the 7S current students and Alumnae to gather their power collectively and leverage each other’s strengths. Over the past two years, over 10,000 Seven Sisters alumnae (and some current students) have been a part of the Seven Sisters Together Facebook group. From this page, our powerful Job and Housing groups developed, along with 30 other interest groups and 15 city groups. We have built the foundation for a network that will continue to grow with the addition of this website.
Having spoken to dozens, if not hundreds of Alumnae over the past two years, there have been several common themes present in each conversation. Looking for Jobs and Housing and finding other Seven Sisters alumnae in their own town or industry are the things mentioned in our conversations.
With over 5,000 members of our Sisters Hiring (Seven) Sisters – Job Page on Facebook, there were many jobs being shared with the group that were getting “lost” because of the sheer number of posts, that it made sense to move this to a searchable database on a website. Now current students and Alumnae will be able to easy search and locate positions in their field, geographic locations and more. And Alumnae with openings at their companies will be able to easily share them and help open the doors for others.
While the ability to search for an apartment, new roommate or find a pet sitter have all been the main focus of the posts on the Stay with a (Seven) Sister on Facebook, there are so many listings, it is hard to search for a specific need. The idea to move this to a website where people could easily search for what they required based on costs, location, duration and more, made sense as well.
The Student & Alumnae Directory is a convenient and easy way to locate other 7S in your town or industry. The Interactive Map makes it easy to find other 7Sers if you are traveling for work or on vacation and want to try to meet up with someone local!
There is also a Business Directory, a 7S Artist & Creators Directory in addition to a calendar of Upcoming Events in cities through out the country and around the globe.
Be sure to check out the Special Offers and Promotions Page on the website. Brands we know and love like Scout Bags, Peloton and more have provided us with some special codes!
I hope that you will find the site to be useful and engaging! We are laying the groundwork to build up the Power of Seven and I am excited to be here to help pave the way!
