Alumni Engagement

Get Involved:

Students love hearing real-world stories and advice from alumni. Please fill out this form if you would like to share your expertise with students.

Alumni Council:

The Waldron Connections Program Alumni Council is made up of distinguished Alumni who have demonstrated past leadership and continued commitment to the College and Northwestern University as a whole. The Alumni Council's mission is to advance the goals of the Waldron Student-Alumni Connections Program through participation, guidance, and advocacy.

Ways to Connect with Students:

Panels:  We host a series of panel discussions to help Weinberg undergraduate students learn about different careers, to understand the ways their interdisciplinary arts & sciences education is preparing them for life after Northwestern, and to connect with alumni in different careers. 

Career Treks:  Each reading week, we take 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.

Small-Group Discussions:  We host programs where one alumnus will lead a career exploration conversation with a small group of students to go further in-depth on what is important to consider when thinking about a career in their industry.

Virtual Opportunities: We host both virtual panel discussions via Zoom as well as launch podcast episodes on our Weinberg in the World feed to continue to meet students where they are at with up-to-date career exploration resources.
