When you receive your degree from the School of Communication + Journalism, you join an accomplished group of more than 2,000 alumni. The network of talented and diverse alumni includes leaders at broadcast, digital and print media outlets as well as media corporations and nonprofits around the globe. Connect with this network and give back to current students through avenues such as volunteering, networking and mentoring.
Alumni regularly give back through charitable giving that helps the school offer students scholarships, state-of-the-art multimedia equipment and in-depth educational experiences. They also show support by career mentoring students and opening doors through professional internships, job and apprenticeship opportunities.
Each year, SCJ alums return to their alma mater from all corners of the world to participate in Panther Alumni Week (PAW), which connects students with alumni through class presentations, industry panels and networking events. PAW promotes the building of relationships, which leads to networking, internships, mentoring and career opportunities.
Your success is our success. The SCJ also recognizes and celebrates distinguished alumni through its Hall of Fame. The Alumni Hall of Fame is designed to be the highest honor a graduate of the SCJ can attain from the school. Candidates should have earned their degree from the School of Communication + Journalism (or the School of Journalism and Mass Communication) not less than 10 years prior to consideration. Candidates must have attained a level of success in their chosen field of communication so that their success and significant contributions are recognized by their peers and have had a positive influence on their professions.
