Alumni are a valuable resource for your field of study and can often provide guidance, internships, mentoring, or even serve as a special speaker for student organization meetings. Tell us what you need!

Each semester we host the Spartan Success Series, comprised of skill-building workshops both on campus and online. You'll also find career advice on our social media channels, particularly LinkedIn.
- Provide over $115,000 in scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students each year! Alumni understand the importance of helping students pursue their education...and they are doing something about it. Through membership dues and donations to the Alumni Association scholarship program, we provide students a variety of annual scholarships. Check out the 2014-2015 scholarship recipients whose education is supported by proud alumni.
