About BYU Connect

BYU Connect, formerly known as Take-a-Cougar-to-Lunch, provides a unique opportunity for students to network with an alumni mentor. Our database includes over 1,500 BYU alumni looking to give back to BYU students pursuing similar fields of interest. With years of valuable work experience, BYU alumni are an incredible resource for all students. Whether you are struggling to choose a major or seeking post-graduation employment, BYU Connect can help you expand your network, broaden your perspective and make vital career decisions.

Registering and matching with professionals is simple. Students provide basic background information and then search the alumni database to identify professionals in their field of interest. After finding a professional, students can contact the alumni to coordinate a time to connect in one of four ways: meeting for lunch, phone call, skype/facetime call, job shadowing.
