Connect with Alums!

  • As you think about exploring academic majors, pursuing internships, or getting more civically involved, a wonderful approach is to talk to alumnae/i! Alums in Mawrter Connect are eager to share their stories, experiences and advice with you.
  • Attend alumnae/i chats to connect with alums who are excited to share their experiences with students; check out the schedule in Handshake.
  • Apply for an externship to shadow an alum at their job during winter and spring breaks and get a firsthand glimpse into a field of interest; look for application details in Handshake later this year.

There are many people on campus available to talk with you about your interests including your dean, major adviser, professors and the Career and Civic Engagement Center. To meet with a career counselor in Career Engagement, schedule an appointment in Handshake.
