Alumni Engagement

Overview:

Many alumni want to connect with students but don’t know where to start.  We welcome your participation, and invite you to share insights from your career and your education with current undergraduates.  Share reflections on your own liberal arts education, provide career coaching or share industry knowledge to assist current undergraduate students in the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences with their career exploration, planning and networking.

Ways to get involved:

Panels and Roundtables:  The Student Alumni Engagement program hosts a series of panel discussions, informal fireside-type chats and ‘lunch and learn’ programs to help WCAS undergraduate students learn about different careers, to understand the ways their liberal arts education is preparing them for life after NU, and to connect with alumni in different careers. 

Career Treks:  Each reading week, the Student Alumni Engagement program takes a small group of students downtown to experience a Chicago business firsthand.  We meet with alumni who work in a particular industry, learn more about that field, and give the students the opportunity to ask questions and get an in-depth look at a particular business. 

Mentoring:  Pair up with a junior or senior student and meet informally throughout the school year to help him/her navigate the job search and transition from student to professional.

Skills Coaching:  Participate in one of our workshops that help demystify and articulate essential skills like networking, job interviewing and resume preparation.

Yes, I want to get involved!
